2024 “Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings” Include Ten UCLA Ed & IS Scholars

Eleven scholars affiliated with the UCLA School of Education and Information Studies are included in the 2024 “Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings.” Published annually by Education Week blogger Frederick M. Hess, the director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, the rankings highlight the top 200 education scholars whose work engages and influences the public sphere. With 11 scholars included, UCLA is the third most-represented institution in the rankings, after Harvard and Stanford.  

The UCLA professors named to the 2024 rankings include: Tyrone C. Howard, Gary Orfield, Jeannie Oakes, Eva L. Baker, H. Samy Alim, Louis M. Gomez, Megan L. Franke, John Rogers, Sylvia Hurtado, Daniel Solorzano, and Eddie R. Cole.

“At a time when political attacks on K-12 schools and higher education intensify, the need for scholars and education leaders to share research, evidence and solutions beyond the walls of our colleges and universities is essential to advancing public good,” said Christina Christie, Wasserman Dean of the UCLA School of Education and Information Studies. “I am so honored to work with the faculty included in this prestigious ranking. We celebrate their work as examples of the power of public scholarship and the significant impact, relevance, and role of ED&IS on our most pressing issues.”
