    Ted Stilwill, the former education director for The Environmental Project, which had been planned for Coralville, has joined a Chicago-area non-profit education firm.

    Stilwill, who served as the state’s director of the Department of Education before joining the rain forest project, will manage the new Great Lakes West Comprehensive Center for Learning Point Associates. Stilwill will work with low-performing schools and districts in Illinois and Wisconsin to help them meet the goals of the No Child Left Behind Act.

    Learning Point Associates works with educators and legislators in changing student learning using research-based services.

    Stilwill left his full-time position with The Environmental Project this month and planned to serve as a consultant. He joined the project in August 2004.
