Standards for Academic and Professional Instruction in Foundations of Education, Educational Studies, and Educational Policy Studies
The AESA Committee on Academic Standards and Accreditation (CASA) is responsible for reviewing and updating, when deemed appropriate, Standards for Academic and Professional Instruction in Foundations of Education, Educational Studies, and Educational Policy Studies. The Standards were originally developed in 1977-1978 and revised in 1996. The current draft of the Standards was revised by CASA over the past year.
We invite comment on the draft Standards from the community of foundations scholars, prior to submitting the final revised Standards to the AESA Executive Committee for approval. Please forward your comments to Sandra Winn Tutwiler, firstname.lastname@example.org, by March 31, 2012.

Maxine Greene, one of AESA’s founders, made countless pleas for centering our field in studies of sources and approaches from arts and aesthetics. Yet still, the definition of our field excludes them, except via backdoors through humanities disciplines (e.g., literary history, history of art, philosophical aesthetics, philosophy of art, etc.). Thus literature, music, theater, dance, photography, film, painting, sculpture, and architecture remain marginalized as interpretive, critical, and normative approaches to the study of education. Particularly given the strong ecological, multicultural, moral, and other value commitments evident in this new document, which I commend heartily, this exclusion is deeply troubling indeed.
