Ball, Cohen, Duke, Dynarski, and Jacob listed on 2019 Edu-Scholar Public Influence Ranking

American Enterprise Institute director of education policy studies and Education Week blogger Frederick M. Hess released his 2019 Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings. This list spotlights the top 200 education scholars who move ideas from academic journals into the national conversation. The University of Michigan has five faculty members ranked in the top 200: Deborah Loewenberg Ball, David K. Cohen, Nell K. Duke, Susan Dynarski, and Brian A. Jacob.

Using nine metrics, Hess calculates how much university-based academics contributed to public discussions of education. Hess says, “As I see it, the extraordinary policy scholar excels in five areas: disciplinary scholarship, policy analysis and popular writing, convening and shepherding collaborations, providing incisive media commentary, and speaking in the public square. This whole endeavor is admittedly an imperfect exercise. Of course, the same can be said about college rankings, NFL quarterback ratings, or international scorecards of human rights. Yet such efforts convey real information and help spark useful discussion.”
