Mr. Crew, 50, a former chancellor of the New York City schools, served most recently as the executive director of the Institute for K- 12 Leadership at the University of Washington. He starts his new job June 1. The Stupski Family Foundation supports public education by giving money to school districts and organizations that are seeking to accomplish large-scale educational reform.

The 2.6 million-member NEA, based in Washington, is the nation’s largest teachers’ union.
