The Association views Education in its broadest sense to include, for example, policy, teaching and learning, administration and leadership.

    The primary goals of this Association are to provide a common platform for discourse within the educational community, encourage and facilitate a national education research agenda, and to provide mechanisms for the dissemination and promulgation of relevant research findings. By promulgating and disseminating relevant research findings we adopt an approach to education decision-making that is reflective of best practice. The Association recognises Education as a discipline in its own right, the best practice of which, as for any other discipline is supported by research and empirical evidence. A strong view of the Association is that educational research must be studied and structured based on evidence of the culture, social environment, resources and the context of practice. The Association's motto is: Education Research for Best Practice, Best Policy.

    The Caribbean Teaching Scholar is indexed by Scientific Indexing Services (SIS) and the Educational Research Abstracts online database (ERA). Abstracts from The Caribbean Teaching Scholar are also included in the journal Research in Higher Education Abstracts.
