Rick Hess, director of education policy at the American Enterprise Institute and an Education Week blogger, named five SOE faculty members to his annual “Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings.”

Deborah Loewenberg Ball, Susan Dynarski, Nell K. Duke, David K. Cohen, and Brian Jacob were among 200 university-based scholars recognized by Hess for shaping public discussions of education. “These results offer insight into how scholars in a field of public concern are influencing thinking and the national discourse,” Hess said.

Eight metrics were used to calculate the rankings. Hess said the rankings reflect, in roughly equal parts, the influence of a scholar’s academic scholarship and their influence on public debate as reflected in old and new media. Read more about the rankings here.
