Dr. Zimmer Recognized as a Top Education Scholar of Public Influence

This month, our director, Dr. Ron Zimmer, was named one of the top education scholars of public influence in the nation. This accolade led to a feature in the University's newsletter UKNOW. Check out the article here!

Dr. Zimmer joined the Martin School's faculty in 2016. In addition to being the director of the school, Dr. Zimmer teaches a class in Education Policy and works directly as faculty supervisor for several students in both the Master and PhD programs. Currently, Dr. Zimmer is working on a research grant funded by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation and the Walton Family Foundation that will provide an extended evaluation of Tennessee’s Achievement School District and Local Innovation Zones. He is working to evaluate the current interventions and to show whether or not they are effective.

Congratulations, Dr. Zimmer!
