Charter school march - Some three dozen persons representing Connections Public Charter School, in the Kress Building, and Ka 'Umeke Ka'eo, on the Keaukaha Elementary campus, marched Wednesday from downtown Hilo to the state building in support of equal funding for public charter schools. Parents, teachers, students and administrators picketed briefly on the Aupuni Street side of the state building before sending in a delegation to present a petition to Governor's Liaison Al Castro.
