To mark the annual release of the 2019 RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings, Education Week Commentary partnered with Frederick M. Hess to invite four education and policy scholars to discuss the following query: What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten on how to be a public scholar?
Accompanying their perspectives is original analysis of this year’s new Edu-Scholar data by the Education Week Research Center. What were the most popular doctorate degrees among these leading scholars? Which universities are best represented on the list? When did these scholars first enter the academic realm?
