The 2012 Edu-Scholar Public Presence Rankings were released last week, with an outstanding ranking of Stanford School of Education’s faculty.
Of the 121 education scholars ranked, 11 School of Education faculty members made the list. Two made the top five and four were named in the top twenty—including Linda Darling-Hammond (#1), Courtesy Professor Eric Hanushek (#3), Larry Cuban (#4), Nel Noddings (#13), and Michael Kirst (#20). Other mentioned faculty include: Susanna Loeb, David Labaree, Mitchell Stevens, Edward Haertel, Eric Bettinger, and Michelle Reininger.
The rankings recognize university-based academics who are contributing most substantially to public debates about schools and schooling. The rankings reflect both a scholar’s body of academic work—encompassing books, articles, and the degree to which these are cited—and their contribution to public discourse as reflected by appearances in education news outlets, blogs, and the general press.
A total of 14 Stanford scholars were named, with six placing in the top fifteen. For the full list and to learn more about the rankings, visit Rick Hess Straight Up in Education Week.
