Steinhardt’s Education Policy Academics Rank Among Most Influential in the Nation

Steinhardt faculty members are among the most influential education policy academics in the country according to the 2016 RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings,  published by Rick Hess, Education Week blogger.

The Education Week rankings list 200 scholars whose ideas move from academic journals into the public discourse.  Faculty are evaluated according to the number of books published and Amazon ranking; number of mentions in the press, blogs and the Congressional Record; Twitter Klout score; and Google Scholar score, which calculates citations of the scholar’s work.

The metrics, as Hess explained, recognizes university-based scholars in the United States who are doing the most to influence educational policy and practice.

Steinhardt faculty members on the Edu-Scholar Public Influence list are:

Diane Ravitch (#2)Jonathan Zimmerman (#57), Richard Arum (#68), Dominic J. Brewer (#111), Joshua Aronson (#120), Okhee Lee (#121), Hirokazu Yoshikawa (#123), Stella M. Flores (#198), and Jennifer Jennings (#199).

“Simply being included in this list of 200 scholars is an honor, given the tens of thousands who might qualify,” Hess said.
