Lutheran Education Association.

Assoc. of Luth. pastors, teachers, and laymen interested in promoting Christian educ.; organized July 1942 at River Forest, Illinois; endorsed 1944 by the Mo. Syn., which suggested that the Ex. Secy. of the synod's Bd. for Parish Educ. be advisory mem. of the Ex. Bd. of LEA. A research council, later called Research Committee, was created 1946 to identify broad areas of activity in Christian educ. requiring research. Research later came to be handled through the ex. board. LEA chaps. have been est. in all of the synod's teacher-training institutions. LEA publications include a yearbook, monographs on educ. subjects, minutes and essays of convs., and Lutheran Education, successor of Evangelisch-Lutherisches Schulblatt (1865–1920) and Lutheran School Journal (1921–47).
