April 26, 2017
How does UW-Madison’s School of Education consistently rank among the very best in the nation?

It’s due, in large part, to the talent and dedication of the School's faculty, staff and students.

On Tuesday evening the School honored some of its most outstanding contributors with School of Education Faculty and Staff Distinguished Achievement Awards during a ceremony and reception in the Education Building's Wisconsin Idea Room.

Congratulations to all of this year's winners -- and thanks for making the School of Education such a remarkable place.
