Educational leadership and completion between the Native Hawaiian leeward district and O‘ahu’s other districts.
The following study attempted to ascertain the leadership effectiveness of public high school administrators towards Native Hawaiian completion through a financially based econometric analysis. Essentially, public high school leadership expenditures and completer data were collected and bivariate interaction analyzed through a correlation and linear regression procedure. Based on the collective results, with the exception of the Windward and Leeward District that reported a positive though statistically insignificant relationship, both the Honolulu and Central Districts reported a statistically insignificant negative relationship. Consequently, despite the positive results seen from both the Windward and Leeward District, public high school administrators were found to have no econometrically meaningful effect towards Native Hawaiian high school completion from 2000 to 2007.
