Influence: Surveying the Ed Landscape

The Editorial Projects in Education Research Center, with support from the Thomas B. Fordham Foundation, published a survey of influence in the educational landscape. Influence: A Study of the Factors Shaping Education Policy (pdf), a report by Christopher B. Swanson and Janelle Barlage, ranks educational studies, organizations, people, and information sources.

The report is about as good a short course on Who's Who in educational policy as you will find. It's certainly not comprehensive, but love it or hate it, like coaches polls, the list approximates influence surprisingly well. "Influence" makes a great intro read for an education policy program or intro to educational policy course. I need to spend more time with the survey results myself.
