Eleven researchers from Penn GSE have made Education Week’s 2017 Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings list. Of these, nine are members of the School’s standing faculty, which represents nearly a quarter of that group.
The list, created by Rick Hess, the Director of Public Policy at the American Enterprise Institute, recognizes scholars whose work shapes public discussion around education.
Education Week ranked Shaun Harper, Marybeth Gasman, Richard Ingersoll, Jonathan Zimmerman, Laura Perna, Robert Boruch, Andy Porter, Pam Grossman, Vivian Gadsden, and Margaret Goertz. Angela Duckworth, a professor of psychology with a secondary appointment at Penn GSE, was also recognized.
Sigal Ben-Porath discusses the issue of universities charging security fees for speakers and the changing nature of college protests and rallies.
Marybeth Gasman comments on the first historically black colleges and universities, located in the North.
