University of Michigan professor elected to education academy
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A University of Michigan history professor is being honored for his contributions to education research and policy.
Jeffrey Mirel has been elected to the National Academy of Education. As a member of the academy, Mirel will participate in professional development programs and serve on expert panels to discuss education issues.
He's one of 12 members from across the country elected this year.
Mirel's research focuses on the history and politics of urban education and the history of school reform. His writings include "The Rise and Fall of an Urban School System: Detroit 1907-81."
University education school Dean Deborah Ball says becoming a member of the academy is "among the highest honors for a faculty member."
