HONOLULU — Active duty military members and their families can take the new Military Child Education in Hawaii online survey to help examine policies about Hawaii’s education experience for military families while stationed here.

Adm. Robert Willard, commander, U.S. Pacific Command, asked active duty service members to consider completing the survey a high priority in an introductory letter to all military leaders.

The study, created by Johns Hopkins University, along with the University of Hawaii, will make recommendations based on parent and children’s opinion about their educational experience in Hawaii.

Families who have changed duty stations will also be provided an opportunity to fill out a survey regarding how well their children are prepared to attend schools after the Hawaii school experience.

The survey focuses on the academic quality of schools, expectations for living and going to school in Hawaii, and information about the children’s needs for academic and behavioral systems.

“If enough people participate in the survey, we will have strong evidence that can speak to education policies and practices, particularly by branch of service,” said Dr. Robert Blum of Johns Hopkins University and director of the study.
