Every year, RHSU releases a Edu-Scholar Public Influence Ranking. This past week, the 2020 rankings were released. The scholars are mentioned in accordance to 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 200 top scholars are chosen. The scholars are chosen by a 29-member selection committee. Amongst the 200 scholars, Professor Jackson was selected.
