Excerpt from WCER news release:

The morning session featured Thomas Romberg, Thomas Carpenter and Elizabeth Fennema, who together worked on advancing math education for a combined total of almost 100 years, offering their perspectives on the progress they made in their work. Moderator Deborah Loewenberg Ball, Dean of the University of Michigan School of Education, praised their work as “incredibly influential.”

“The footprint of WCER on U.S. math education research and around the globe is enormous…Not only did (WCER) researchers build a strong program of research and development, but created in some sense a movement that has been created and extended by other researchers,” Ball said.
