Lora Cohen-Vogel, Robena and Walter E. Hussman, Jr. Distinguished Associate Professor of Policy and Education Reform, has been named among the top 120 education scholars in the “2012 RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Presence” rankings.

The rankings, published by Education Week blogger Rick Hess, are designed to “recognize those university-based academics who are contributing most substantially to public debates about schools and schooling.”

According to Education Week, the scores draw about “40 percent on scholarly influence in terms of bodies of work and citation counts, 25 percent on book authorship and current book success, and about 35 percent on presence in new and old media.”
