ALEXANDRIA, VA—ASCD has announced that Anthony Rebora is the new editor in chief of Educational Leadership (EL) magazine, the association’s flagship publication. Rebora joins ASCD from Editorial Projects in Education, where he served as the managing editor of Education Week Teacher and the assistant managing editor of Education Week since 2007.
“We’re delighted to have Anthony Rebora as the new editor in chief of Educational Leadership,” said Stefani Roth, ASCD publisher. “Anthony has proven throughout his career that he knows how to deliver high-quality content in innovative ways to meet the needs of educators. I’m so pleased to have someone like Anthony join us here at ASCD, as he is sure to maintain the high standards of EL and pursue new ideas that keep the magazine on the cutting edge of education publishing.”
Rebora brings a wealth of relevant experience and proven successes to the editor in chief role. In his time as managing editor of Education Week Teacher and assistant managing editor of Education Week, he guided and helped expand coverage of the teaching profession, with an emphasis on practitioner voice; led a significant increase in traffic for the Education Week Teacher website; managed and edited several award-winning blogs; oversaw web design and analytics as well as social media outreach; coordinated webinars, virtual roundtables, and other interactive features and events; and expanded editorial partnerships to broaden the publication’s content. He previously spent eight years as the online editor and senior online editor for Education Week, during which time he was instrumental in the growth and development of the Education Week website infrastructure and content and the establishment of the site’s first blogs.
“I’m honored and excited to become part of Educational Leadership, a publication that is deeply influential in the education field, and one that has such an impressive history,” Rebora said. “I look forward to working with my ASCD colleagues, and educators and writers across the country, in creating its next great chapter.”
With a circulation of 135,000, EL is acknowledged throughout the world as an authoritative source of information about teaching and learning, new ideas and practices relevant to practicing educators, and the latest trends and issues affecting preK through higher education. The magazine was named “Best Overall Publication” by the Association of American Publishers (AAP) at the 2016 REVERE Awards.
Rebora takes over the editor in chief role from Marge Scherer, who retired last week after 25 years at ASCD, including 20 years as the EL editor in chief. To learn more about Scherer and her career at ASCD, you can read her interview with Scholastic Administrator, “An Editor’s Reflections.”
