The 2013 RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Presence Rankings were released this week and record number of CEPA faculty scores high marks on the list. Of the 168 education scholars ranked, 7 CEPA affiliate faculty and faculty made the list: Eric Hanushek (4), Susanna Loeb (42), Caroline Hoxby (45), Michael W. Kirst (48), Rob Reich (66), Thomas Dee (81), Edward H. Haertel (96), Mitchell Stevens (98), Eric Bettinger (127), Michelle Reininger (166)
The metrics for the rankings are designed to recognize those university-based academics who are contributing most substantially to public debates about K-12 and higher education. The rankings offer a useful, if imperfect, gauge of the public impact edu-scholars had in 2012, both due to short-term activity and longer-term contributions. The rubric reflects both a scholar’s body of academic work — encompassing books, articles, and the degree to which these are cited — and their 2012 footprint on the public discourse.
