Robert Gordon, who played key roles in the White House Office of Management and Budget under the Obama administration, including during the development of the education portion of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, has been tapped to serve as the assistant secretary for planning, evaluation, and policy development at the U.S. Department of Education.

Mr. Gordon was credited by some advocates with doing important behind-the-scenes work to help ensure that the unprecedented $100 billion in education aid included in the stimulus would be accompanied by a new commitment to education redesign at the state level.

Mr. Gordon is currently a guest scholar at the Brookings Institution.
