SUSANNA LOEB, the Barnett Family Professor of Education, was elected earlier this month to membership in the National Academy of Education on the basis of her outstanding scholarship in the economics of education and the relationship between schools and federal, state and local policies.
Founded in 1965, the National Academy of Education seeks to advance education research and its use in policy formation and practice. The group has undertaken research studies that address pressing issues in education and that typically include both academy members and other scholars with an expertise in a particular area of inquiry. In addition, members are involved in the academy’s professional development fellowship programs that focus on the preparation of the next generation of scholars.
Loeb is one of 12 scholars elected to the National Academy of Education this year. Before her election, Stanford had 19 of the 162 members in the group — the most of any university.
