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.

You can read more about CASA in our By-Laws,

A Few Important Announcements:

There are now two addresses that will take visitors to our CSFE site:  csfeonline.org  and a new address — socialfoundations.org  Please share either of these links with those who might be interested in learning about the Standards and other Council work.

If you would like to support the work of the Council, please consider joining as an individual (sustaining) member.  The cost is minimal ($10).  Membership forms are available for download through the “Membership” page to the right.  For leaders of social foundations organizations, this would be an ideal time to submit membership dues as well.  See membership forms for details.

This year, the CASA committee of AESA has been reviewing and drafting proposed revisions of the CLSE/AESA Standards. We will try to get the word out as opportunities for comment become available.

And finally, it is time for us to elect new CSFE officers.  In the near future, I will appoint a nominations committee to prepare a slate of candidates for those whose terms of office have expired.  We will also be working to identify current voting members (member organization delegates) in order to hold a proper online election.  A call for nominations will be posted here, and on the AESA listserve soon.

Welcome

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is, not a preparation for life; education is life itself. — John Dewey

Welcome to the Council for Social Foundations of Education (CSFE) Online! This site provides information about the Council’s current activities, past achievements and aspirations for the future. It also provides links to our member organizations, constitution, and Standards for Academic and Professional Instruction in Foundations of Education, Educational Studies, and Educational Policy Studies.

The purpose of the Council, as stated in the CSFE Constitution, is to provide a forum among learned societies and individual scholars in the humanistic and social foundations of education for developing, discussing, approving, and implementing policies regarding matters of mutual interest among members. Such matters may include, but are not limited to, standards related to the preparation and licensure of educators and accreditation of education programs or units.
