The History of Education Society Constitution provides the guidelines and framework for how our organization functions.  Its role is to keep our operations functioning efficiently so that we can focus as much of our energy as possible on encouraging scholarly research and promoting and improving the teaching of the history of education.  Our updated constitution furthers this goal by creating a new role at the leadership level and offering opportunities for our members to become involved in their organization.
