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.

The September 16, 2018 Star Advertiser Insights column provided two views on the Education Funding Constitutional Amendment Ballot; a “Yes” commentary by HSTA’s President Corey Rosenlee, and a “No”commentary by Ray L’Heureux, former Assistant Superintendent of the Department of Education, and Randall Roth, Professor Emeritus of Law at the University of Hawai`i at Manoa. In order to provide a balanced view on the measure, we would like to present both views at the next HE`E Meeting on Tuesday, October 9, 2018.

Along with HSTA’s Government Relations Specialist Mitzie Higa to speak in support, we have also invited former Assistant Superintendent Ray L’Heureux to speak in opposition of the measure. The structure of the meeting will be as follows:
