Nieto, McDermott cited for promoting public dialogue on education policy
Professor emerita Sonia Nieto of the Department of Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies and associate professor Kathryn A. McDermott of the Department of Educational Policy, Research and Administration were among 168 education scholars nationwide named to The American Enterprise Institute’s (AEI) Frederick M. Hess’s “Edu-Scholar Public Presence Rankings,” which recognizes “university-based scholars for their contributions to the public square.” That impact is described as both the corpus of a scholar’s work (widely-cited works, books, etc.) and that scholar’s centrality to public discussion in 2012 (appearances in newspaper reporting, online media, and so forth). Hess is the AEI's director of education policy studies and an Education Week blogger. Read more.
