Of the largest school districts in the United States, Hawaii has the lowest per-pupil expenditures adjusted for cost of living. Hawaii spends the least on it school facilities. Hawaii is ranked the lowest on the amount of spent for school facilities. Hawaii is also ranked the lowest for teachers' salaries which resulted in 1,600 vacancies at the end of the latest school year. At the start of this school year there were 600 vacancies which includes positions filled by non-qualified emergency teaching hires. Public education funding has been neglected in Hawaii.
