Two BYU faculty recognized for education contributions

Two Brigham Young University faculty members have been selected as Agenda for Education in a Democracy Scholars by the Institute for Educational Inquiry.

John Rosenberg, dean of the College of Humanities, and Steven Baugh, director of BYU's Center for the Improvement of Teacher Education and Schooling, executive director of the BYU-Public School Partnership and professor in the David O. McKay School of Education, received the honor for their contributions to the Agenda for Education in a Democracy.

Baugh and Rosenberg were selected to receive the recognition along with 28 other individuals across the nation.

Rosenberg was recognized for his initiative to strengthen education for indigenous and ethnic minority populations. For Baugh, his leadership in initiatives to strengthen school curriculum in relation to developing democratic citizenry, and his efforts to improve community involvement in bettering education, were major factors that led to him receiving the award.

The Agenda for Education in a Democracy seeks to foster social and political democracy in youth, ensure that youth have access to the knowledge and skills required to lead satisfying and responsible lives, develop educators who nurture the education and well-being of every student and ensure educators' competence in and commitment to serving as stewards of schools.

The Institute for Educational Inquiry provides support to the National Network for Educational Renewal, a network of school-university partnerships in the United States and Canada.
