Personnel File: Toch leaves Ed Sector, Romer to College Board


Tom Toch is leaving Education Sector, the organization he co-founded, to lead the Association of Independent Schools of Greater Washington, which represents 84 nonprofit schools in the Washington, D.C. area.

ED in '08's Roy Romer, former governor of Colorado, can channel all of his energy for national standards into a new gig as a senior advisor to the president of the College Board. He'll be tasked with working with states and federal officials on creating rigorous, common standards. This is especially timely now, with all the talk by President Obama and education secretary Arne Duncan about the need to create common academic standards.
