Journal of Case Studies in Education, v8 2015
In the United States, Universities have accepted the necessity for standards in many disciplines and have chosen to apply for accreditation through either state or national accreditation approved agencies. In some states, accreditation is required by the state governing groups in order for students to receive state or national scholarship aid. In Schools of Education, the current national accrediting agency is CAEP, Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation. For Science, the professional organization is the National Science Teachers Association, NSTA. This article reviews the evolution of CAEP and gives a concise, step-by step formula for applying for renewal accreditation in the secondary science content. Suggestions for simplifying the process are listed in specific steps.
