The Cato Institute has hired David F. Salisbury to be the director of its new Center for Educational Freedom, which will work to advance education policies that support vouchers and other forms of school choice.

Mr. Salisbury, 50, had served as the president of the Sutherland Institute, a free-market think tank based in Salt Lake City.

The Cato Institute is a public-policy-research foundation based in Washington.

The International Reading Association has appointed Bill T. Hammond to a two-year term as the co-chairman of its Urban Diversity Initiatives Commission, which will work to improve the quality of reading instruction in urban schools.

Mr. Hammond, 56, who started serving this month, will continue to work as the instructional coordinator for the 96,000- student DeKalb County school district in Georgia.

The reading association, based in Newark, Del., is a professional organization that represents nearly 350,000 educators around the world. It provides resources to help educators improve students’ reading skills.

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has hired Liping Ma as a senior scholar for its community program.

Ms. Ma, who served as a consultant on K-12 mathematics teaching in the United States, has been a visiting scholar at the Menlo Park, Calif.-based foundation since 1999.

The goal of the Carnegie Foundation’s new community program is to link the resources of the foundation’s national programs to the needs of local school districts. Ms. Ma, for example, will assist mathematics teachers in Silicon Valley, Calif.
