A Politico publicist sent out a note to let everyone know they’ve launched a new newsletter, Morning Education, in case we missed it. We did. As a lot of others probably did, too.
Education can be a pretty hot local beat—it’s one parents and communities pay attention to—but do people really clamor for this stuff from a place like Politico? It’s not quite as sexy as defense or even tech policy. But, then again, we keep hearing about this impending student loan crisis, so… maybe. The inaugural Morning Education actually does quite a good job culling a ton of policy-related education news so we’ll keep our eye on it.
In any regard, Morning Education is helmed by an experienced hand, reporter Libby Nelson, previously at Inside Higher Ed. Education coverage at Politico is led by editor Nirvi Shah with senior education reporter Stephanie Simon. Caitlin Emma, previously a Politico Pro web producer, is joining the education team, too.
