Hawaii State Teachers Association President Cory Rosenlee says Hawaii has long trailed other states when it comes to spending on K-12 public education.

Voting “yes” on the constitutional amendment ballot question this year, he believes, is the state’s best hope for rectifying historic spending inequities. He joins Pod Squad host Chad Blair for this podcast.
