The AP reports (June 10, 2006) that the Department of Education is going to use a form of mystery shopping to help make the Honolulu public school facilities more “visitor-friendly.”

Project Aloha, which is a great name for the program, will use volunteers to visit the schools posing as parents to evaluate how well they are treated. If the school employees demonstrate weak customer service skills, they will be sent a “Letter of Hope.” I guess this is the Department of Education’s form of a disciplinary letter. How about a detention session for the flagrant abusers of these mystery parents? And during the session they could be forced to view some customer service videos. (I know where they can get some!)

Even though I jest, it is commendable that the DOE is taking a look at this.
