January 10, 2022

Education Week has unveiled the 2022 RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings, which rank the 200 university-based scholars in the United States who did the most last year to shape educational practice and policy. Brian Jacob and Christina Weiland of the Education Policy Initiative are among four University of Michigan scholars named, in addition to Deborah Loewenberg Ball and Nell Duke of the School of Education. 

According to the article in Education Week, each scholar was scored in nine categories: Google Scholar score, book points, Amazon ranking, Twitter score, syllabus points, and newspaper, education press, web, and Congressional Record mentions. The rankings were created by Rick Hess, creator of the RHSU Edu-Scholar Rankings, who is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and the director of the think tank’s Education Policy Studies, as well as author of EdWeek’s “Rick Hess Straight Up” blog.
