A recent report entitled Abercrombie: My “emanations” will make DoE serve students first by Hawai`i Free Press sheds some light on Neil Abercrombie’s curious proposal to solve Hawaii’s education morass with his special powers.
According to Hawai`i Free Press:
“How does Abercrombie propose to bring public employee unions into line? In a “Guiding Principle” of his Education Plan entitled “Respect for principals and teachers” Abercrombie explains:
“This respect will emanate from a Governor who was a teacher and has worked to improve education throughout his career.”
The akamai reader will immediately recognize Abercrombie’s Education Plan as a symptom of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (301.81 in DSM IV) more commonly referred to as megalomania. But some of Abercrombie’s followers may not be so easily persuaded. For instance, actress Kelly Hu says, “Listening to Neil speak is like going to church.”
