Mahalo to Randall Roth, Joan Husted and Marsha Alegre for presenting about the Hawaii Education Institute, an exciting new organization. HE’E members engaged in spirited dialogue and look forward to the Institute’s progress.  Three documents were presented at the meeting which are listed.

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.
For more information about the Hawaii Education Institute, please contact Randall Roth (President) and Darrel Galera (Executive Director), whose contact are in the first document.
