University professors recognized for influence in education policy

Susanna Loeb, PhD, Director of the University’s Annenberg Institute for School Reform, was just named in the 2019 Rick Hess Straight Up EduScholar Public Influence Rankings. In 2018, Loeb designed and oversaw Getting Down to Facts II, a project which analyzed California’s PreK-12 education system to determine the efficacy of recently adopted reforms and provide “potential avenues moving forward for State policy makers,” Loeb wrote. The project analyzed “student success, governance systems, personnel issues and school finance” to build a better understanding of California’s education system.
