Wei Lab Director Dr. Jerlando F.L. Jackson was named one of the 200 most influential scholars in U.S. education based on the 2020 RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings.
Every year, Education Week releases a Edu-Scholar Public Influence Ranking. The scholars who make the list are selected based on who did the most in 2019 to shape educational practice and policy. Individuals are secondarily scored by their newspaper mentions, education press, congressional record, book points, google scholar, and more.
Over 20,000 scholars qualify, but only the 200 top scholars are included on the list. The final list of scholars are chosen by a 29-member selection committee.
