Paul Teske is once again ranked among the most influential education policy academics in the annual “Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings.” Compiled by American Enterprise Institute director of education policy Rick Hess, the rankings recognize 200 university-based scholars who shape public discussions of education. “One small way to encourage academics to step into the fray and revisit academic norms is, I think, by doing more to recognize and value those scholars who engage in public discourse,” explains Hess. “As I see it, the extraordinary policy scholar excels in five areas: disciplinary scholarship, policy analysis and popular writing, convening and shepherding collaborations, providing incisive media commentary, and speaking in the public square. I’m not sure I’ve got everything exactly right, but I think such efforts convey real information and help to spark useful discussion.”
Congratulations Dean Teske!
