Hawaiian Education Initiative

Nā Lau Lama is a statewide, private/public collaboration to improve outcomes for Native Hawaiian students in public schools. Nā Lau Lama is working to identify educational successes in the “community classroom” and to integrate these practices at multiple grade levels. The end goal is to achieve meaningful, relevant connections that engage children in education, a stronger presence of cultural relevance in public classrooms, and better outcomes among Hawaiian learners system-wide.
