News Release from HSTA, February 10, 2017

Thousands of Hawaii teachers and their supporters will march from the Neal Blaisdell Center to the Hawaii State Capitol in support of the Hawaii State Teachers Association’s efforts to secure a fair contract that attracts and retains teachers as well as to lobby for a constitutional amendment that will drastically improve funding for Hawaii’s school system. Joining public school teachers will be parents, students and community members. The march and rally are sponsored by the Hawaii State Teachers Association.
