Eight researchers from Penn GSE, plus another Penn faculty member with a secondary appointment at GSE, have made Education Week’s 2018 Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings list.
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.
Marybeth Gasman moved into the top 10 in the Education Week ranking at #8. Professors Jonathan Zimmerman, Laura Perna, Richard Ingersoll, Andy Porter, Robert Boruch, Pam Grossman, and Vivian Gadsden also continue to be ranked. Angela Duckworth, a professor of psychology with a secondary appointment at Penn GSE, was also recognized in the top 10 at #3.
