We appreciate the support from our legislators for public schools!
Quality Public Education is essential to achieve equity and opportunity for all.
We face special challenges in Hawai`i, here more families choose private schools than in any other state.
We surveyed legislators on their public school experience and choices for children and grandchildren.
Attending public school or sending children or grandchildren to public school is not required to support public education.
However, it is essential that those with personal experience and investment in public schools,
like parents and public-school educated representatives are included in our decision-making.
