Hawaii public schools today begin a month of distance learning to kick off the new school year.
But for many students -- and some parents -- it will be back to campus to learn in person how to use online technology and meet the teachers.
The teachers’ union opposes that plan. It says it’s not safe to hold in-person training while COVID-19 cases are surging.
At Kauai High School, about half the students, several hundred of them, are expected on campus to attend all-day classes for one week.
