John L. Anderson, a former International Business Machines Corporation executive and an education consultant, has been appointed to the newly configured position of president of the New American Schools Development Corporation.

Beginning Jan. 1, Mr. Anderson will oversee the day-to-day operations of NASDC, the private, non-profit corporation established in 1991 by American business leaders in response to President Bush's call for the development of "break the mold'' schools.

David T. Kearns will continue as NASDC's chairman and chief executive officer. Earlier this fall, Mr. Kearns was appointed to a fellowship at Harvard University's Project for Schooling and Children, which has made it difficult for him to spend time at NASDC's headquarters in Washington, said Paige Cassidy, a spokeswoman for NASDC.

NASDC had hoped to raise as much at $200 million to create break-the-mold schools, but the target was later lowered to $100 million, and is now under review.
