    The Company, also called the Hawaiian Syndicate, is the name given to an organized crime syndicate based in Hawaii that controlled criminal activities in the state from the late 1960s to the mid 1990s.

    Through the 1960s organized crime in Hawaii was controlled primarily by local Asian criminal organizations, mainly Chinese Triads, Japanese Yakuza, Korean Kkangpae and Samoan criminal outfits. The first change came when a local Korean named George Chung formed his own criminal organization in 1962 , recruiting among local Koreans, Japanese, Chinese, Samoans, and Native Hawaiians. The smaller ethnic gangs all vied for control of organized crime, leading to disorganized clashes, so over time Chung was able to create an environment where every gang could do business. In July 1967 Chung was shot to death in a Honolulu gambling den.

    The Hawaiian Islands have a total land area of 6,423.4 square miles
    Population 1,450,000 (2015)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawaiian_Islands


    The population density is 222.9 people per square mile. This ranks it 13th in the US in population.

    With an 'organized crime' syndicate which rules Hawaii with it's limited land area and contained human population, it is easy to see how even the Law enforcement and Government Officials would/could be under their 'sway'.

    Alema Leota (March 10, 1928 – May 11, 2008 ) was an alleged Hawaiian organized crime boss [1] during the 1960s and 1970s, who led an unsuccessful nonpartisan campaign for the Governor of Hawaii during the 1978 election.[1] He was defeated by former Governor George Ariyoshi during the general election.

    Leota was born and raised in Lāʻie, Hawaii, on the island of Oahu, to Samoan immigrant parents, Aivao and Matala Leota.[1] His parents were among the first Samoan immigrants to settle in Hawaii in 1919 after their conversion to Mormonism.[1] He attended Kahuku High School, but ultimately graduated from 'Iolani School.[1]

    Leota was drafted into the United States military during the final draft conducted after the end of World War II.[1] He served for three years in the 82nd Airborne Division, based in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and completed over 40 parachute missions.[1]

    He first made headlines in Hawaii in 1952 when Leota and his brother, Reid Leota, were arrested in Honolulu on charges of murdering a man at a pool hall on Smith Street.[1]Leota was later convicted on a lesser charge of assault while his brother was convicted of murder.[1]

    Alema Leota was repeatedly fingered by both federal and state authorities of allegedly being head of Hawaii's organized crime during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Often called The Boss, he was rumored to have been one of the most feared yet respected men of his time

    Muliufi Francis Hannemann (born July 16, 1954) is an American politician, businessman, and non-profit executive. He was elected twice as Mayor of Honolulu in 2004 and 2008. Hannemann has served as a special assistant in Washington, D.C., with the Department of the Interior, where he was selected for a White House fellowship in the Reagan administration under Vice President George H. W. Bush. He also served as chairman of the Honolulu City Council. He is the first person of Samoan descent and the second member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to serve as Mayor of Honolulu (Neal S. Blaisdell was the first).

    Muliufi Francis Hannemann was raised in the Honolulu community of Kalihi by his German-Samoan father, Gustav Arthur Tafu Tupulo Hannemann III, and Samoan mother, Faiaso Soli'ai, whose grandfather High Chief Muliufi Soliai was one of the original signatories to the deed of cession that transformed Eastern Samoa and the Manua Islands into the US Territory of American Samoa. He attended Fern, Puʻuhale and Kalihi Kai elementary schools up to the seventh grade before being accepted to the ʻIolani School with a scholarship. He graduated with honors and competed in basketball and American football. In the fall of 1972, Hannemann left the Hawaiian Islands to attend Harvard University where he was elected freshman class president and was varsity basketball letterman. Upon graduation from Harvard in 1976, Hannemann continued his studies as a Fulbright Scholar at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.[1] He returned to Honolulu after his studies to become an educator at his alma mater, Iolani School. He was a history teacher and basketball coach.

    A secondary school teacher instructs students in grades 9 through 12 in both public and private educational institutions. The primary objective of these teachers is to educate students and prepare them for college and the job market. This guide provides further information on what high school teachers do, how to become one, and the occupation’s salary and outlook.

    Becoming a teacher in a secondary school requires earning a bachelor’s degree in secondary education or in a teachable subject like biology. To teach in public schools, a state teaching license or certification is required. Secondary school teachers in a private school are typically not required to hold certification, though this is a growing preference in private school systems. To become a high school teacher, the most common steps are:

    1. Earn a bachelor’s degree with a major in the subject you wish to teach while completing your school’s teacher preparation program.
    2. Complete a student teaching internship in the subject(s) you wish to teach.
    3. Take the teaching and subject-area tests for teacher licensure required in your state.
    4. Apply for your teaching license.
    5. Begin applying for open positions in your subject area(s).
    In addition to earning a major in the particular subject you wish to teach, you must take a teacher preparation program approved by your state in order to qualify for certification. Many four-year colleges and universities require students to wait until their sophomore or junior year before applying to teacher programs. These programs include a student teaching internship, during which students have a chance to work under experienced educators who act as mentors as well as teachers. During this time, they also have the opportunity to see how the school works, receive reviews on their teaching skills, learn how to discipline students, and develop a general feel for the school atmosphere. If you already have a bachelor’s degree in the subject you want to teach but did not complete a teacher preparation program, a master’s degree or another alternative route to licensure may be a good fit for your goals.

    What is Elementary Education?
    Elementary education is a specialized field in education that is focused on teaching and developing elementary school children, usually ages five to ten, or grades one through five. While middle school and high school teachers often specialize in a particular subject, or multiple subjects, elementary educators are trained to effectively operate a one-room school environment. Most elementary schools do not switch classes, requiring teachers for lower grades to demonstrate competence in all areas of education and classroom maintenance.

    Bachelor’s Degrees in Elementary Education
    Elementary education bachelor degree programs often offer areas of concentrations and minors. A student can choose to just complete the straight program with no specializations. However, this teacher’s employment options are limited to just basic teaching of elementary students grade K-6. On the other hand, an individual that chooses a concentration in special education or art or even mathematics has more options because this teacher can teach art classes, math classes or work with special needs students.

    An example of this can be found with this program. Students choose a major in elementary education but can also choose specializations in two grade levels or two concentrations. While in the program, the student completes general education courses, core courses and major-related courses. Prior to graduation, the student must complete a student teaching segment to get practical experience in the classroom.

    This student is also eligible for licensure in elementary education and special education or elementary education and English as a second language. The program also offers students a choice of different minors. Another example is this program, which offers concentrations in English, social studies, foreign language, mathematics and science. There are many options available in bachelor degree programs besides the fact that they prepare you for graduate studies.

    Some schools offer dual-degree programs, which can also open up more opportunities for the student as he or she graduates with a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts. Lesley University has a dual degree program where students graduate with a bachelor degree in elementary education and a master degree in English as a second language.

    By state law, education is compulsory over an age range starting between five and eight and ending somewhere between ages sixteen and eighteen, depending on the state.[7] This requirement can be satisfied in public schools, state-certified private schools, or an approved home school program. In most schools, compulsory education is divided into three levels: elementary school, middle or junior high school, and high school. Children are usually divided by age groups into grades, ranging from kindergarten (5–6 year olds) and first grade for the youngest children, up to twelfth grade (17–18 years old) as the final year of high school.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education_in_the_United_States


    Elementary is usually 1-5th or 6th grade. Middle School is usually 6th or 7th to 8th grade.

    Although the U.S. has Compulsory Education laws in each State, how is the youth opioid crisis getting out of hand?

    Would this be considered, 'evil'?
