The Hawaii Educational Research Association (HERA) provides a forum for sharing issues, insights, and research findings with educational researchers, administrators, teachers, and others who want to improve educational practice. Through its annual conference, publications, and periodic forums, HERA is a source of information for concerned educators in Hawai‘i. HERA also sponsors the Pacific Educational Research Journal, a refereed journal published annually.
