The 30th Hawaii State Legislature convenes on Jan. 16, 2019. Here's what HSTA's Government Relations Committee will be advocating during the session, and on all levels of government.
A strong public school system drives a strong, dynamic economy. Providing our keiki with quality public education is everyone’s kuleana (responsibility). We all have an important role in supporting learning opportunities for our children.
Students are the priority. As leaders in education, teachers build strong foundations and inspire the next generation so they may continue to shape and enrich our society.
The Hawaii State Teachers Association is committed to the success of every student and teacher. Providing the best education starts with proper funding and resources. Teachers deserve everyone's support in providing a well-rounded curriculum and learning experience, implementing the best practices, and developing one-on-one connections with every student.
We encourage the community and our decision-makers to join HSTA in advocating for our students and teachers to transform Hawaii’s public schools.
These are our HSTA Government Relations priorities this year based on the results from our membership survey, actions from our HSTA Convention, and general feedback from our members.
