Lora Cohen-Vogel, the Robena and Walter E. Hussman, Jr. Distinguished Associate Professor of Policy and Education Reform, once again is included in this year’s edition of the RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Presence Rankings.

Cohen-Vogel was ranked at No. 150 and was the only UNC-Chapel Hill faculty member on the list.

The ranking is compiled by Education Week blogger Rick Hess and is intended to “recognize those university-based academics who are contributing most substantially to public debates about K-12 and higher education.”

 “The rankings offer a useful, if imperfect, gauge of the public impact edu-scholars had in 2012, both due to short-term activity and longer-term contributions,” Hess said in his blog post. “The rubric reflects both a scholar's body of academic work -- encompassing books, articles, and the degree to which these are cited -- and their 2012 footprint on the public discourse.”
