Three researchers from the UGA College of Education were named “outstanding reviewers” for journals produced by the American Educational Research Association.

Martha Carr, Julie Kittleson and Pedro Portes will be honored during a ceremony at AERA’s annual meeting in April.

Carr, a professor in the educational psychology department, and Portes, holder of the Goizueta Foundation Distinguished Chair in Latino Education and executive director of the Center for Latino Achievement and Success in Education, were named outstanding reviewers for the American Educational Research Journal section on teaching, learning and human development. Kittleson, an associate professor in the mathematics and science education department and on-site instructor in the UGA-Clarke County School District’s Professional Development School District, was named outstanding reviewer for the journal Educational Researcher.

Each year, the editors of AERA journals name expert peers who have helped identify the highest-quality articles for publication. The annual honor recognizes scholars who have provided outstanding professional service to the journals, AERA and to educational research.
