Pro Education, a division of Politico Pro, starts Wednesday. It’s one of three Politico Pro sections to be unveiled in the coming months. The others include Pro Agriculture and Pro Trade, which will launch in October.
(Hey, it could be worse, they could be opening Hawaii, Australia or Spain Pro Bureaus a la HuffPost.)
According to a release sent out today, “Once the new sections are up and running, Pro will have 10 policy sections and more than 75 journalists – making up one of the largest rosters of policy reporters in the country.”
Pro Education will be headed up by Education Editor Nirvi Shah, who joins Pro from Education Week.
