Island living, while physically stunning and culturally rich, comes at a steep price. An estimated 6,188 residents of Hawai’i are homeless and living on beaches or in shelters. Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders comprise a disproportionate 59% of the homeless population, which includes 1,700 children.
We can provide an excellent education for kids in low-income communities. Although 16 million American children face the extra challenges of poverty, an increasing body of evidence shows they can achieve at the highest levels
Outcomes for kids in Hawai‘i public schools have historically been mediocre at best. Now, more than ever, there is energy and urgency around transforming the educational landscape of our state. Our 2013 Teach For America corps—nearly twice the size of past corps groups—will work with more than 16,000 students in the coming school year. At this critical moment we are excited to be partnering with our communities to give all of Hawai'i’s children the opportunity to receive the education they deserve.
