Ken James, who served stints as Little Rock school superintendent and state Education Department director before heading into the private educational world, has been hired to lead the Arkansas Advanced Initiative for Math and Science, which works to improve Advanced Placement test performance in math, science and English.

He succeeds Tommie Sue Anthony, who's retiring. According to the group's most recent publicly available tax return, in 2011, Anthony was paid $115,000. James had been a member of the board of directors of the group, whose support comes primarily from government agencies.

UPDATE: James will be making $125,000, says Jim Argue, chair of the board.
