State Sen. Jill Tokuda talks Education

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)-Education will once again be the focus of an interactive week-long celebration at the State Capitol from March 14-22, 2011. Various educational stakeholders and organizations that make a difference in the lives of Hawaii's students will be participating in the legislature's 8th Annual Education Week. During House and Senate Floor Sessions, legislators will also be honoring various individuals and schools, such as Milken Award educators, district teachers of the year, principals of the year, and Hawaii Blue Ribbon Schools.

The event is being organized by the Hawaii State Senate Committee on Education. Focused on highlighting the success of our schools and our students, this year's celebration will include programs and events that bring everyone, from our youngest of keiki to our most mature kûpuna, to the State Capitol to educate and engage with policymakers. 

 Some highlights include:
