Five U-M Scholars on 2017 RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings list
Education Week released the 2017 Rick Hess Straight Up Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings on January 11. Of the 20,000 education faculty in U.S. universities, 200 were chosen based on scores in nine categories. Five University of Michigan education scholars appear on the list (in order of appearance): Susan Dynarski, Nell Duke, Deborah Loewenberg Ball, David K. Cohen, and Brian Jacob.
This list recognizes university-based scholars in the U.S. who are doing the most to influence educational policy and practice. The rubric reflects both a scholar's larger body of work and their impact on the public discourse last year. The purpose of the ranking is to recognize scholarship that impacts the real world and encourage Universities to invest in this meaningful work.
