Standards for Academic and Professional Instruction in Foundations of Education, Educational Studies, and Educational Policy Studies
Download PDF copy of the most recent version of the Standards for Academic and Professional Instruction in Foundations of Education, Educational Studies, and Educational Policy Studies.
Background: The Second Edition of the Standards was presented to the educational community by the Council of Learned Societies in Education (CLSE), now the Council for Social Foundations of Education (CSFE) on behalf of the Council’s twenty member societies. The Standards were first developed and published in 1977-1978 by the American Educational Studies Association (AESA). CLSE assumed proprietorship and responsibility for dissemination and advocacy of the Standards following adoption of the document by each of its member societies in the early 1980s. In 1986, the original Standards were republished. The resulting booklet was widely circulated at colleges of education, state departments of education, and national accreditation agencies. In response to developments in the field of teacher preparation, licensure, and assessment, CLSE revised the Standards sufficiently to warrant publication of a Second Edition in 1996.
