Student cut with knife during Waianae High School fight

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:15 a.m. HST, Jan 05, 2013

Waianae High School was on lockdown for about 45 minutes after a 19-year-old  student was cut with a knife during a fight with another student just before lunch Friday.

The boy received multiple cuts, including one to the shoulder, and was taken to the Queen’s Medical Center for treatment, said Donalyn Dela Cruz, Department of Education spokeswoman.

The Department of Emergency Services said the victim was transported in serious condition.

The incident began about 12:17 p.m. at an outdoor basketball court while other students were still in class, Dela Cruz said. A school employee broke up the fight, she said. No other students were involved.

The suspect, of a Lahaina Street addres and also 19, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder and criminal property damage.

The lunch period was delayed for about 45 minutes because of the lockdown, Dela Cruz said.

It is already prohibited for students to carry knives. Sad to say that sooner or later at least some of the schools in Hawaii (and Waianae will be the first) will end up like some on the mainland with required search and scan by a metal detector before entry on school property.

19 years old, did they start school late, or did they have to repeat da grade? Come on guys, what are you doing. Why do you have to fight? Was it worth your while? Is killing someone make you a BIG MAN? You are absolutely wrong and that tells me you need more "good" family upbringing. Wow no respect for life. Not only Waianae, but this whole island. Making us look bad.

64 - I agree that allie Ilikes to bash on Waianae and Hawaiians with one ignorant stereotype after another and in general run off at the mouth every chance he gets. I am not saying I agree with the troll but consider the fact that not too long ago the Feds stepped in because of chronic terroristic threatening of a Caucasian girl. Though there is much that is good about the community it's always the negative minority that will get all the attention and will generate the ignorant statements by ignorant individuals.

DA - You trying to apply common sense to a situation brought on by the complete absence of it. I agree that this kind of thing makes all of us look bad and neither the state (BOE) nor the City (HPD) will be able to resolve the root cause. Is it really a coincidence that this happened at a school that nearly lost certification and brought nationwide negative attention to the school and state because of chronic racially centered threatening of a girl? There is a reason why this school is at or near the bottom on nearly every scholastic category. This is a scenario that plays out not just here but in "bad" areas across the country. It is usually the teachers and administrators that get thrown under the bus and to a very very limited degree, yes they own a share of the responsibility but the other 99.9999% belongs squarely on the heads of the parents who will point their fingers everywhere but where it belongs...at themselves. Lots of these parents think that by making their kids go to school they are doing their due diligence when in fact they are merely passing the buck, shirking responsibility and teaching their kids how a parent can pass the buck. The problem starts and ends with the parents and family as the kids only act out on what they are taught. It's not till the parents and community take APPROPRIATE pride in their community and their school that things will get better. To make matters worse, the "problem children" that these parents dump on the school for free baby sitting end up being disruptive elements making it more difficult on the kids that sincerely go to school to better themselves and on the teachers who want to do a good job. It's an old story 80% of the community pay for the irresponsibility caused by the less than 20%. It's time the 80% stood up and made the less than 20% knock it off.

If they are SPED qualified they can remain in the system longer for services. If they are retained then they are entitled to be there. Regardless, students with great academic needs tend to have more social disconnects, and as we saw in stats recently, they become a part of the incarcerated. When is Waianae High going to do something about the core curriculum fitting the needs of students? Stats don't change unless there is success in what is being taught. The students need more success in learning to stay the course. Unless the content meets the needs of 70% to 80% of the population, it isn't the right approach.

There you go again False, with your jibberish. When are we going to face the reality that there are bad people in this world and we should deal with them accordingly. I don't know what that is, but making excuses and coddling them will only perpetuate the bad behavior until something really bad happens (fighting with a weapon is bad enough).

false - sad to say what you're suggesting removes one very important aspect of learning and that is the ability to adapt. Instruction that is brought down to the level of the lowest common denominator degrades the learning for everyone. It again runs afoul of a dysfunctional family that is intent on limiting the child and teaching them to live in a world where it's their way or nothing. Unfortunately they are not the one that writes the rules and never will be. Every culture sooner or later meets a point where they are forced to adapt and find a happy medium to the question of the pacific islander or asian or african or hispanic living in a western world or some other cultural conflict The problem here is that the "social disconnects" (as you call them) that are at play here would make these individuals misfits and dysfunctional no matter what culture they live in.

A "Super Market" approach to provide appropriate scaffolds of instruction that are aligned to critical thinking and Common Core, has to be researched based. Data for the state shows the Waianae High isn't connecting with a lot students using the current content. Data says a lot and missing students count as "missing students" at 7th grade, at 9th grade and at 12th grade. We can make a dramatic difference if we respond to what the data says.

false - cite the sources for your "information" so we can verify the validity. So in order to encourage "critical thinking" as you call it one must remove challenges to the students perception. Entertaining thought. So you are agreeing that the parents failure to be engaged in the child's education is to blame, being that had the parent been engaged in the education of their child, the instruction would reflect feedback between parent and teacher.
