Education Week has unveiled the annual 2023 RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings which rate education scholars based on criteria that determines who has made the largest impact in their field over the previous year. 

Education Policy Initiative's faculty co-director Christina Weiland and faculty affiliate Brian Jacob, and School of Education professors Deborah Ball and Nell Duke have made the noteworthy list of the top 200 scholars. 

To determine their ranking, each scholar was scored in nine categories including: Google Scholar rating, number of times they were mentioned in newspaper, web, and education-focused articles, book publications, Amazon ratings, the number of times their texts appeared on syllabi, whether a scholar was referenced by a member of Congress, and their Twitter presence. 

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.
