PHILADELPHIA — Six professors from the University of Pennsylvania have been honored as American Educational Research Association Fellows, recognizing their exceptional scholarly contributions to education research.

AERA honored 44 education researchers as fellows this year and five of them were from Penn’s Graduate School of Education, including John W. Fantuzzo, Vivian L. Gadsden, Richard Ingersoll, Rebecca A. Maynard and Stanton Wortham. The sixth fellow is Eric Thomas Bradlow from Penn’s Wharton School.

“This is a remarkable showing for Penn faculty,” said Andy Porter, Dean of the Penn Graduate School of Education. “Six University faculty members earning this honor is a pretty solid commentary on the quality of our scholarship and impact of our colleagues.”

AERA Fellows serve as role models and mentors for the next generation of researchers.
