NASBE Brings on Robert Hull to Direct College, Career, and Civic Readiness Work
Arlington, VA – The National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) is pleased to announce Robert Hull has joined as director of the organization’s college, career, and civic readiness project. For the last four years, Hull has served as West Virginia’s associate state superintendent of schools.
Hull has been involved in education reform, mostly in West Virginia, for nearly 40 years. Hull started his career as an elementary school teacher in West Virginia’s Putnam County Public School District, and later became principal for eight years prior to moving to district administrative positions. Hull served as assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction and directed early childhood education, federal programs, and community outreach for the school district during his tenure there. In 2010, Hull joined the West Virginia Department of Education as assistant superintendent of schools in the division of teaching and learning. Quickly promoted to associate state superintendent of schools at the department, Hull oversaw numerous state programs including educator quality, early learning, career and technical innovation, federal initiatives, and policy development and deployment for Common Core State Standards and Smarter Balanced assessments.
“Robert Hull has years of experience in implementing college- and career-ready standards in West Virginia. That combination of practical, hands-on knowledge with his deep understanding of how to improve education for all students makes him a welcome addition to the NASBE team,” said Executive Director Kristen J. Amundson.
