Rick Hess, director of education policy for the American Enterprise Institute and a blogger for Education Week, included seven SOE faculty members in his “Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings,” which recognize 200 university-based scholars who shape public discussion of education.

Included in the rankings were Deborah Loewenberg Ball, David K. Cohen, Susan Dynarski, Nell K. Duke, Brian Jacob, Elizabeth Birr Moje, and Michael N. Bastedo.

Using eight metrics, Hess calculated how much university-based scholars contributed to public discussions of education, moving ideas from academic journals into the national conversation. “One small way to encourage academics to step into the fray and revisit academic norms is, I think, by doing more to recognize and value those scholars who engage in public discourse,” Hess said. “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. I think such efforts convey real information and help to spark useful discussion.”
