Ladson-Billings elected next president of the National Academy of Education

December 09, 2016
UW-Madison's Gloria Ladson-Billings was elected the next President of the National Academy of Education, NAEd announced in a news release

Her term will begin in the fall of 2017 and will last four years. Ladson-Billings was elected by her peer NAEd members. 

Ladson-Billings is the School of Education's Kellner Family Distinguished Chair in Urban Education and a leading pedagogical theorist and teacher educator. Ladson-Billings is a professor with the departments of Curriculum and InstructionEducational Policy Studies, and Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis.

The NAEd supports research for the advancement of education policy and practice in the United States. Its members are a very select group of education experts from all over the world. Ladson-Billings was first elected to the academy 10 years ago. 

Madison365.com interviewed Ladson-Billings about being elected the next president of NAEd.

“As president, one of the things that I’d like to do is to increase the recognition of our brand -– I don’t think a lot of people know what the academy is or what we do,” Ladson-Billings tells Madison365.com. “I’d also like to do more work with the other academies. I think that there’s some synergy there. I would like to develop some consensus panels on what I see are pressing issues.”
