Educating Our Keiki is Everyone’s Kuleana. Each of us – parents, students, teachers, business owners and legislators – has a part to play in helping our keiki succeed.  Hawaii’s future depends on what happens in classrooms from Hanalei to Hamakua.  With the proper respect, resources, and supports, teachers’ voices can help shape the future.
