Education initiative aims to fight teacher shortage in Hawai‘i

Be a hero. Be a teacher.

The teacher shortage in Hawai‘i classrooms has prompted the University of Hawai‘i System and Hawai‘i Department of Education to combine forces to fight this growing problem. “Be a hero. Be a teacher” is an initiative that encourages college students to explore careers in education. UH Manoa, UH Hilo, UH West Oahu, Leeward Community College and UH Community college all offer programs on campus and online from bachelors to masters degrees in general and special education, Hawaiian language immersion and more.
