Thomas Brock

Thomas Brock, the commissioner of the National Center for Education Research, who also oversaw the Institute of Education Sciences for the past year, will leave the U.S. Department of Education’s research agency June 29.

He is moving on to become the director of the Community College Research Center at Teachers College, Columbia University. Before joining the department in 2013, Brock led the young adults and postsecondary education division at the research firm MDRC.

Robert Hull

Robert Hull, the executive vice president of the National Association of State Boards of Education, has been tapped as the organization’s next president and CEO, effective in January.

Kristen Amundson

He will take over from Kristen Amundson, who will retire at the end of the year after leading NASBE for five years.

Hull started his career as an elementary teacher in West Virginia, then served as a principal and in other administrative positions. He also worked as an assistant superintendent in that state’s education department.

A former teacher, Amundson served in the Virginia legislature and was a senior vice president for the think tank Education Sector.
