The stupidity of the Board of Education has been made clear. The Legislature has not approved the money to purchase Kaakopua and Keoua Hale. This is a huge sum of money, and it is better if they purchased some other land and built buildings for the high school, and not that beautiful house which will cost a lot to clean it up, as a place for a few people to live haughtily and snobbily off the money of the Government. It is true!
