Karen Aka Chief Academic Officer
From the schoolhouse to the statehouse, Karen Aka has been involved in education and training for over thirty years. She spent the first eight years of her career as a special education teacher and supervisor in the inner city of Pittsburgh, PA. After moving to Hawai'i, she taught in a private school for Hawaiian/Part-Hawaiian students. This experience generated interest in indigenous, culturally congruent education. She was able to pursue that interest when she worked with a federally funded, educational laboratory in Honolulu that serves eight entities in Micronesia, American Samoa and Hawai'i. At the lab, her work expanded to education policy reform. In 1994, Karen began and successfully completed a two year collaborative effort to recodify the education chapter of the Hawai'i Revised Statutes into a coherent policy framework. The recodification was facilitated through the Chair of the State Senate Education Committee. She also served for two-terms as a Governor-appointed State Commissioner for the Education Commission of the States. Since 1996, she has been the President of her own company, Knowledge, Inc.
