2017 Recipient

Kevin G. Welner
University of Colorado

Dr. Kevin G. Welner produces high-quality scholarship and effectively communicates his own and others’ research findings to decision makers and policy specialists in education, as well as to mainstream media and the general public. As director of the National Education Policy Center, he has been an influential source of accessible, data-driven, peer-reviewed policy research on important and timely topics, including K–12 high-stakes testing and the Every Student Succeeds Act/No Child Left Behind Act. His work often corrects deliberately biased presentations and misinterpretations of authors, and organizations that use flawed research to bolster their ideologies. His record exemplifies engaged scholarship and public communication of research.        

The Outstanding Public Communication of Education Research Award is presented to honor scholars who are exemplary in their capacity to communicate the importance of education research to the broad public, including education communities.
