Estelle Matthis

Mr. Daniel, 56, a professor of educational administration at The Ohio State University in Columbus, specializes in education law. He began his one-year term with the association last month.

The Dayton, Ohio-based Education Law Association works to raise the understanding of legal issues in education by providing its 1,400 members in the United States and 11 foreign countries with publications, conferences, professional forums, and seminars. The association's members are a mix of lawyers and educators.

Mr. Daniel succeeds Allan G. Osborne as president of the association. Mr. Osborne, the principal of the 500- student, pre-K-5 Snug Harbor Community School in Quincy, Mass., will serve as immediate-past president for a one-year term.

John A. DeFlaminis has been named the executive director of the newly formed Penn Center for Educational Leadership at the University of Pennsylvania's graduate school of education.

Estelle Matthis

Mr. DeFlaminis, 60, retired as a public school administrator last month, after a 17-year tenure as superintendent of the 3,200-student Radnor Township school district in Wayne, Pa. He has been teaching at the university's graduate school of education in Philadelphia in an adjunct position for the past 15 years.

The Penn Center for Educational Leadership, which was developed over the past year, provides professional- development workshops, leadership degrees and certification programs, curriculum development and technical assistance, and continuing education courses for its member districts.

The center has partnerships with 15 districts in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. It plans to expand its partnerships to schools across the United States and in other countries.
