Welcome to the homepage of the Academy for Educational Studies. The Academy was founded in 2005 with a particular mission in mind: to create a community of people interested in having thoughtful conversations about important educational questions and issues. The Academy accomplishes this by hosting the Critical Questions in Education Conference (as well as other activities) and by creating publishing opportunities connected with Academy events.
Membership in the Academy is open to all who want to share in and contribute to these important conversations--university professors, practicing teachers, school administrators, teacher education students, and anyone else who cares about schools and teaching. Membership information and a list of member benefits is available on this web-site.
Please explore our web-site—and we especially invite you to examine the Academy's journal, Critical Questions in Education, edited by Eric C. Sheffield. Click on the journal’s link for instructions on how to submit articles for peer review.
We want to share the Academy for Educational Studies with you--on this website, at our conferences, through our publications, and through an offer of membership. Please contact us at AcademyEdStudies@missouristate.edu or 417-836-5982.
