In other AESA news, there is a Call for Nominations of Members for the Committee on Academic Standards and Accreditation (CASA), reprinted below from the AESA Weekly Roundup.

Dear AESA Membership, The nominations committee will receive nominations for three available appointments to the Committee on Academic Standards and Accreditation

(CASA) until October 5. CASA is an advisory committee to AESA with the responsibility for maintaining and, when appropriate, updating, the Standards for Academic and Professional Instruction in Foundations of Education, Educational Studies, and Educational Policy Studies. The committee is also responsible for making professional educators aware of the Standards; educating foundations of education faculties regarding the use of the Standards, and gaining the support of accreditation and state departments of education in the general enforcement of the Standards. CASA members serve three year terms and the committee meets each year at the annual conference.
