HE’E Planning Meeting: Tuesday, September 9, 2014, 9:00-11:00am at The Learning Coalition, 841 Bishop Street, Suite 301.  (Validated Parking at Ali’i Place, 1099 Alakea Street).  
At the next Planning Meeting, HE’E is pleased to have Randall Roth introduce an emerging organization called the Hawaii Education Institute. The Institute will function as an education think tank with an overarching goal of improving the quality of public education in Hawaii so that more children thrive and more professionals reach their full potential as educators.  The Institute will conduct studies that are independent, objective and nonpartisan, focusing on principles and practices of effectiveness.  It will also gather the perspectives and insights of principals and other administrators, teachers, parent groups and community leaders through surveys and focus groups; organize and promote public forums; and work directly with media to help ensure news coverage of public education issues that is predictably accurate, comprehensive and timely.

 

Along with the presentation about the Hawaii Education Institute, the Planning Team will also continue discussion on YRBS strategy and actions as well as start ideas about 2015 Legislative Session.
Please join us for an engaging discussion! Please contact cheri@heecoalition.org if you will attend the meeting.
