Statement on the Passing of Stan Koplik

January 25, 2000

We were all deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Stanley Koplik. Stan was a dedicated and caring public servant who was at the center of this decade's reform movements in both K-12 and higher education. He unfailingly stood for high academic standards. He insisted that the interests of students and parents come first. He repeatedly demonstrated creativity and courage in confronting difficult and controversial problems. And he never lost his sense of fairness or his sense of humor. Stan was a public official who knew how to convert ideas into action. He will be sorely missed.
