UW-Madison's Gloria Ladson-Billings was elected the next President of the National Academy of Education. Her term will begin in the fall of 2017. “As president, one of the things that I’d like to do is to increase the recognition of our brand -– I don’t think a lot of people know what the academy is or what we do,” Ladson-Billings tells “I’d also like to do more work with the other academies. I think that there’s some synergy there. I would like to develop some consensus panels on what I see are pressing issues.”
