The California Teachers Association has re-elected Wayne Johnson as its president. The state council of the 300,000-member cta voted unanimously last week to keep Mr. Johnson for a second two-year term.

Wayne Johnson

A high school social studies teacher in the Los Angeles schools, Mr. Johnson, 60, served as the association’s vice president before his initial election as president in 1999. The CTA, based in Burlingame, Calif., is an affiliate of the National Education Association, the nation’s largest teachers’ union.

Thomas P. Jandris

Thomas P. Jandris has been named the president and chief education officer of Education World Inc., a Princeton, N.J.-based Internet-resource center for K-12 educators. He started work in January and is responsible for promoting the company’s initiatives with education leaders. Mr. Jandris, 52, is also the director of state services for the Education Commission of the States, a Denver-based group that helps state leaders develop education policy. He plans to stay in both jobs.

Frank J. Gumper

The Universal Service Administrative Co., based in Washington, has announced the re-election of its top two leaders this month. Frank J. Gumper, 58, and Cheryl L. Parrino, 47, were re-elected to their positions as the chairman of the board and the chief executive officer, respectively, by the USAC board of directors.

The USAC, a nonprofit organization, oversees the popular E-rate program, which helps schools get discounted rates for telecommunications services.
