The Penn GSE Education Alumni Association (EAA) is proud to announce the recipients of the 2017 Education Alumni Awards. Intended to honor the accomplishments of GSE alumni and other education professionals, the awards recognize outstanding contributions to Penn GSE and the field of education.
Penn’s Graduate School of Education has been ranked #3 in U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 rankings for graduate schools of education. The ranking marks the school’s highest performance ever, and the sixth consecutive year Penn GSE has been in the top 10.
Robert Parris Moses, educator and civil rights activist, will deliver the keynote address at Penn GSE’s commencement ceremony on May 13. Mr. Moses is president and founder of the Algebra Project, Inc., which prepares students who have performed in the lowest quartile on standardized exams to graduate from high school on time and ready to take college mathematics.
