Wonderful. Maybe year round school was a good idea! But lemme see... knives vs sister in Waipahu, flashlight vs sister in Pearl City... I gotta figure brothers threaten sisters with caviar spoons in Kahala.

What is this world coming to? And yes, I agree, the year-round school concept would help reduce this. When kids are idle they are more apt to get into trouble.

Wrong! Lack of parenting is the cause. Schools should not be shackled with behaviorial responsibilities. Moral behavior must be learned at home by parents leading the way how to act in society. This attitude of letting someone else mentor your own children is wrong. The family circle is where a child develope his social skills and moral character. Modern day parents are too busy seeking their own hedonism and failing to teach those that they brought into this world, or on the other side of the coin, eking out a living. Poverty, may have some influence, but parents with strong moral fiber will overcome the burdens of being poor.

Amen! Parents assume a huge responsibility when choosing to have kids. Parenting a child is not based on the economy or where you live. Responsible parents will teach their children proper behavior, no matter the size of their bank account or their zip code.
