President's Welcome Message
Welcome to the website for the Politics of Education Association. First, a brief history lesson…
The Politics of Education Association (PEA) was formed in 1969 as the Politics of Education
Society. In 1978, it became the Politics of Education Association, as part of the American
Educational Research Association (AERA). Interest in educational policy and politics expanded
so that in 1987, the Association successfully called for the formation of a new division within the American Educational Research Association. Today, that division is known as Division L: Policy
and Politics. The Politics of Education Association continues as a Special Interest Group
affiliated with AERA.
We hope that you find this website to be a useful one that facilitates connections to politics of education research and researchers.
