Abstract
Description
The COVID-19 crisis presents unprecedented opportunities to reimagine and redesign our failing public school system, especially to meet the needs of Native Hawaiians, Hawaiʻi’s largest and most undereducated and uneducated ethnic group. This paper presents a vision of a Hawaiian model of education grounded in a research-based Pedagogy of Aloha, as a prototype for intergenerational places of learning throughout Hawaiʻi that are culturally-driven, family-oriented, community-based, and both traditional and contemporary, empowering learners to walk successfully in multiple worlds.
