Martin Carnoy Listed in 2020 Edu-Scholar Public Influence Ranking

Martin Carnoy Listed in 2020 Edu-Scholar Public Influence Ranking

Dr. Martin Carnoy, a Professor at Stanford University and Academic Advisor at the IOE International Laboratory for Evaluation of Practices and Innovations in Education, has entered the top 10 of the 2020 Edu-Scholar Public Influence Ranking in ‘Economics of Education.’   

The Edu-Scholar Public Influence Ranking is a comprehensive methodology that ranks scholars who have done the most to shape robust policy and practice in education.

Being named among the top 200 of the ranking reflects the high regard accorded to one’s academic accomplishments by the professional community, given that there are more than 20,000 nominees in the initial pool every year. In 2020, sublistings of the top 10 by particular strand of education scholarship were introduced for the first time to complement the main ranking of 200 highest-impact researchers.     

Education is a massive realm that unites academics of various backgrounds who pursue research in fields that differ widely, so a ranking procedure that differentiates into research areas allows more representative assessments compared to when an evaluation is just confined to ‘aggregate’ estimates of academic impact, Frederick Hess, a supervisor for the Edu-Scholar Public Influence Ranking comments.   

Dr. Martin Carnoy is HSE University’s long-time partner who has been engaged in a diverse research and networking agenda, including in his capacity as Academic Advisor at the IOE International Laboratory for Evaluation of Practices and Innovations in Education. Carnoy has researched into multiple perspectives of educational economics and beyond. The empirical evidence he and his teams have been able to obtain from schooling contexts at various levels and in different nations has served to better inform education policy and practice. Dr. Carnoy’s alumni are distinguished academics, economic experts, and public agency heads in different corners of the globe.  

I see my key imperative as an educator and academic in helping prepare competent young researchers who are adept across skills, tools, and areas of expertise so they lead the way delivering high-impact scholarship. A dimension whose importance has been widely underestimated until today, basic research provides pivotal groundwork on which to build as we set out to promote sustainable positive change in education and development.
