The Canadian Society for the Study of Education.
Farquhar, Robin H.
The nature and functions of the eight-year-old Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE) are summarized, some of its unique features are highlighted, and a few of the challenging ambiguities confronting it are noted. The CSSE is a confederation of eight semi-autonomous member associations: the Canadian Association for Curriculum Studies, the Canadian Association of Deans of Education, the Canadian Association for Educational Psychology, the Canadian Association of Foundations of Education, the Canadian Association for the Study of Educational Administration, the Canadian Association for Teacher Education, the Canadian Educational Researchers' Association, and the Comparative and International Society of Canada. CSSE seeks to provide a unified "voice" for Canadian scholarship in education and sponsors a number of publications and meetings each year. In addition, most of its member associations sponsor periodic newsletters; some sponsor special-purpose national seminars, regional conferences, and awards for superior research articles. CSSE is about one-tenth the size of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), its total membership having varied between 1200 and 1600 over the past few years. CSSE, when compared to AERA, has several unique features which are described in some detail. (RL)
