The Council on Anthropology and Education is a section of the American Anthropological Association. Founded in 1968, CAE is dedicated to the advancement of scholarship on schooling in social and cultural contexts, and on human learning both inside and outside of schools. 

The mission of the Council on Anthropology and Education is to advance anti-oppressive, socially equitable, and racially just solutions to educational problems through research using anthropological perspectives, theories, methods, and findings.

The Council advocates for:

  • Research that is responsive to oppressed groups.           
  • Research that promotes practices that bring anthropologists, scholars from other disciplines, and educators together to promote racial and social justice in all settings where learning takes place.
