ALERT! - CNHA TO POCKET $225,000 IN $1.5
MILLION HAWAIIAN CHARTER SCHOOL SCHEME
Please forward this to all
Hawaiians and our supporters.
Mahalo to everyone who has taken the time to express your outrage

Council For Native Hawaiian Advancement $1.5 million dollars
earmarked for Hawai`is charter schools.
Without officially notifying the trustees ahead of time, OHAs
administration decided to award the CNHA a contract to be a
middleman in the disbursement of these funds.

depriving Hawai`i charter schools of $225,000 badly needed
Why? Because The CNHAs mission is simple - secure funding to
force US fed...
