OUR VISION:

Exemplary public schools in Hawaii

We serve as an education think tank that educates and inspires all stakeholders to promote empowerment and innovation in all schools.

Our Goal

To educate, inform, and inspire all stakeholders through research studies, forums, partnerships, and community networks; to advocate for lasting system reform that is based on the tenets of school empowerment.

Our Work

The Education Institute of Hawaii conducts studies that are independent, objective and nonpartisan, focusing on principles and practices of effectiveness. We 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 the media to help ensure news coverage of public education issues is predictably accurate, comprehensive and timely.

DOE BUDGET TRANSPARENCY

EIH is committed to helping the Hawaii DOE account for 100 percent of its annual budget by funding a financial model that will provide fiscal transparency. The value of fiscal transparency is all key stakeholders will have the same information and a common starting point to review DOE spending.

EMPOWERMENT

School empowerment recognizes the uniqueness of each school community and that one size rarely fits all, which makes it nearly the opposite of Hawaii’s current governance structure and management mentality. An empowered-schools system requires a philosophical shift.

Our Partners

EIH is funded by a grant from the Mamoru and Aiko Takitani Foundation, a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to helping Hawaii’s youth.

My vision is … future-focused empowered school communities that inspire innovation, creativity, and leadership in a healthy and safe learning environment.
