Hi there, I made some large cuts here earlier today, and just felt I should leave a longer explanation on the talk page. The tables of Presidential and Gubernatorial elections were part of a Request for Comment at WikiProject United States, and the decision was to move these to subarticles when relevant. There's also a more detailed chart I've linked to on this article. I also noticed a ton of duplication in the images here, particularly in galleries under Governance, Geography, and in a separate Gallery section. Gallery sections are strongly discouraged per WP:GALLERY, and so I've moved most images into individual sections, while removing several similar ʻIolani Palace photos, satellite images, and maps. I also combined the two Historical Population tables, which removed some of the notes, though these were largely repeating what was in the paragraphs above. Did editors see any issue with these image/table changes?-- Patrick, oѺ∞ 21:27, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
In the subsection about education, the following line appeared in the Citation Hunt tool: "Hawaii has the only school system within the U.S. that is unified statewide. Policy decisions are made by the fourteen-member state Board of Education, which sets policy and hires the superintendent of schools, who oversees the state Department of Education. The Department of Education is divided into seven districts; four on Oʻahu and one for each of the other three counties. The main rationale for centralization is to combat inequalities between highly populated Oʻahu and the more rural Neighbor Islands, and between lower-income and more affluent areas."
This is from source #88 - US: Hawaii Investment and Business Guide, Volume 1 Strategic and Practical By IBP USA. This quote appears on page 34.
Looking through the book (or what's available of it) on Google Books, it looks like a large chunk of the publication was taken from Wikipedia without attribution (WP:BACKWARDSCOPY). I don't think we can use this as a source. I'm going to remove the other use of this source from the article for the same reason. Aoi (青い) (talk) 22:03, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
Though I do not have the complete factual data for corrections, the entry:
• Latitude 18° 55′ N to 28° 27′ N
• Longitude 154° 48′ W to 178° 22′ W
can not possibly be correct. Hawaii's spread of islands is between ~19 and ~20 degrees North. To be between 18 and 28 it would have to be nearly 700 miles north to south and 154° 48′ W to 178° 22′ W is almost 1700 miles east to west.
Even with including territorial wares to 200 miles from the high tide line it is too large an area.
