American Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies

The American Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies (AAACS) is the American affiliate of IAACS. This Association is established to support a “worldwide” – but not “uniform” – field of curriculum studies. Our hope, in establishing this organization, is to provide organizational support for a rigorous and scholarly conversation within and across national and regional borders regarding the content, context, and process of education, the organizational and intellectual center of which is the curriculum.

ACSA works to support educators so that all students have access to a meaningful, relevant and engaging curriculum. ACSA provides national advocacy and leadership in curriculum. It is committed to curriculum reform informed by the principles of social justice and equity and respect for the democratic rights of all.
