In this episode of E Hana Kakou, Grassroot President Keli’i Akina interviews one of Hawaii’s true “movers and shakers.” An attorney, activist, and law professor at University of Hawaii, Randall Roth has left his mark on our community, and has been central to many efforts to improve life in the Aloha state. His account of his involvement in the making of the movie The Descendants touches beautifully on the tension between respecting the past and encouraging progress that so many in Hawaii identify with. With his sights now set on improving our public schools, Professor Roth shares with Dr. Akina his thoughts about what needs to be done about the school system and what he hopes to accomplish with a newly established educational think-tank.
