Working Together
— Hopes for the Future of Education in Hawai‘i —

This symposium will feature two prominent educators relatively new to the local education scene. Paul LeMahieu has been a consultant to and is now the State Superintendent of Public Schools for the Hawai‘i Department of Education. Randy A. Hitz is the new Dean of the College of Education of the University of Hawai‘i at Månoa. The speakers will be asked to address questions such as these: How can we bring research to bear on schooling in Hawai‘i? What are the proper roles of the university, public and private schools, and research and service entities like PREL and CRDG in promoting better practices in the school? Representatives from other stakeholders in the local education community will be invited to participate, and there will be time for questions from the audience.
