WASHINGTON -

The U.S. Department of Education has named seven leaders to the National Assessment Governing Board and one of them is a returning member from Columbus. Dale Nowlin is a math teacher at Columbus North High School and a department chair for the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation. He was first appointed to the board in 2011.

The appointees will help set policy for the National Assessment of Educational Progress, also known as The Nation's Report Card. The new leaders will serve four-year terms.

"The collective wisdom, experience and skills of the appointees play a crucial role in ensuring that The Nation's Report Card remains an effective barometer for what our students know and can do in core subjects. I am confident that their thoughts and recommendations on K-12 education will further strengthen the Board's oversight of these important assessments," U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said.

The 26-member Governing Board includes governors, state legislators, state and local school officials, educators, researchers and business representatives.
