The story behind our association
The Hawaii Education Association (HEA)
HEA has an illustrious beginning. It was founded in 1921 to represent the educational community to the Territorial Legislature. Statehood in 1959, brought the importance of HEA to the forefront, becoming the “voice” of educators” by representing the welfare of all educators at the Legislature. In 1970-71, HEA was instrumental in establishing three educational collective bargaining units that are still in existence. This, however, altered the direct influence and impact HEA would have on Hawaii’s educational community.
Demographics and needs of the educational community have changed; however, HEA continues to support its vision of affirming the professionalism of Hawaii’s educators. In 1994, HEA acquired 501c(3) nonprofit status to continue their support for excellence in education. Throughout HEA’s history, loyal and committed members have supported the organization through generous annual donations to support Teaching As A Career (TAAC), scholarships for pre-service education and active teachers, and Excellence in Teaching and Learning (ExTL) initiatives.
