February 2014 video message for members

HSTA President Wil Okabe invites you to watch his video message on VIMEO.

Every education decision is a political decision.

I know for many of you, getting involved in political action does not come naturally and it tests your comfort zone. However, when we elect candidates who support teachers and public education we have a better chance of improving student learning and helping all children in Hawaii maximize their potential.

Mahalo for all you do for the children in schools and mahalo for your efforts outside the school.

Wil Okabe
