 FIELD NARROWED TO SIX FOR COMMISSIONER OF EDUCATION POST
 QUINCY, Mass., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- A State Board of Education Search Committee has selected six semifinalists for the position of Massachusetts Commissioner of Education and successor to Harold Raynolds Jr. who resigned from the post on Aug. 30.
 Chosen from a field of 18 quarterfinalists and 67 original applicants, the six candidates are: Robert V. Antonucci, superintendent of the Falmouth Public Schools; John C. Davis, superintendent of the Somerville Public Schools; Richard H. Goodman, director of the Center for Educational Field Services for the University of New Hampshire; Joel Radin, superintendent of Niagara Wheatfield Central School District in New York; Claire L. Sheff, superintendent of the Hull Public Schools; and Ralph E. Sloan, superintendent of Norwalk Public Schools in Connecticut.
 John J. Gould, chair of the Commissioner's Search Committee, told the Board of Education today that his group was "extremely impressed" with the caliber and qualifications of the quarterfinalists they interviewed in the last month, and that narrowing the field to six candidates was not an easy process. Eight of the quarter finalists were Massachusetts residents, and 13 were school superintendents.
 Each of the six semifinalists will receive four interviews on Thursday at the Lenox Hotel in Boston. One interview will be with the State Board of Education, a second with representatives of various divisions within the Massachusetts Department of Education, and the third and fourth interviews will be with representatives of Bay State educational organizations and advisory groups to the Board of Education.
 Gov. William Weld will participate in the morning interviews, which begin at 9 a.m. and Lt. Gov. Paul Cellucci will be present during the afternoon sessions. Following the semifinalists' interviews, the Board of Education will evaluate the candidates and select a group of finalists for the Commissioner's post.
 The board will interview the finalist and announce the appointment of a Commissioner-elect on or near its next meeting date of Feb. 25.
