CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia Superintendent of Schools Michael Martirano will represent the state on a national education research commission.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin appointed Martirano to the Education Commission of the States. The 50-year-old organization tracks state policy trends, translates academic research, provides advice and creates opportunities for state leaders to learn from one another.

The commission is the only state-focused national organization to bring together governors, state legislators and education leaders. Other West Virginians serving on the commission are Paul Hill, chancellor of the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission; Amelia Courts, president of the West Virginia Education Alliance; and Lawrence Malone, the governor’s policy director.
