Dr. Bradley Porfilio, associate professor of educational leadership at Lewis University, was recently awarded two American Educational Studies Association Critics’ Choice Awards. Porfilio received the awards for his co-edited volumes “The Phenomenon of Obama and the Agenda for Education: Can Hope Audaciously Trump Neoliberalism?” and “Using Standards and High-Stakes Testing for Students.”

Each year, a committee of AESA members selects a number of titles it regards as outstanding books that may be of interest to those in educational studies. The books are designated as AESA Critics’ Choice Award winners and displayed prominently at the annual meeting. The Critics’ Choice Award serves to recognize and increase awareness of recent scholarship deemed to be outstanding in its field and of potential interest to members of the Association. The AESA provides a cross-disciplinary forum for college and university professors who teach and research in the field of education utilizing one or more of the liberal arts disciplines of philosophy, history, politics, sociology, anthropology and economics.
