The Education Commission of the States recently hired Thomas B. Hayward as its senior development officer and Milton Goldberg as its liaison to Congress and the White House.

Milton Goldberg

Mr. Hayward, a retired four-star U.S. Navy admiral who served on the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the Carter and Reagan administrations, will lead fund- raising activities for the Denver-based ECS. He currently heads Thomas B. Hayward Associates, a consulting firm that helps U.S. companies develop business opportunities in the Pacific region.

As the organization's Washington liaison, Mr. Goldberg will help communicate state perspectives on educational issues to Congress and the White House. He currently serves as the executive vice president of the National Alliance of Business, a Washington- based group that serves as the voice of the business community in efforts to improve K-12 and higher education.

The ECS is a nonprofit organization that works with state policymakers to identify and implement educational policies that improve student learning.

The Education Leaders Council has elected William J. Moloney to be the chairman of its board of directors.

Mr. Moloney, who is the Colorado commissioner of education, succeeds Jim Nelson, who resigned as chairman last month but plans to remain a member of the board. Mr. Nelson has also announced he is resigning in April as Texas commissioner of education to pursue a career with Voyager Expanded Learning, a Dallas-based company.

Founded in 1995, the Washington-based ELC is a nonprofit group of state and other education leaders who are pursuing policies geared to greater accountability, parent and teacher empowerment, and local control over schools.
