He'e Coalition

Join together to make a difference!

Hui for Excellence in Education, or “HE’E,” is a statewide coalition of diverse stakeholders committed to working collaboratively to identify opportunities to improve public education in Hawai‘i. HE‘E promotes a child-centered and strength-based public education system in which families, communities and schools are valued and empowered to help every student succeed. HE‘E works to bring diverse stakeholders together to harness collective energy, share resources, and identify opportunities for progressive action in education.

HE‘E was formed in May 2010 by parents and community members who stood up and said “no” to school furloughs and “yes” to re-establishing education as a public priority.
