10 Bylines We Love for Superficial Reasons

Unknown

Politico Pro Education On the Way

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.

Pro Education will be headed up by Education Editor Nirvi Shah, who joins Pro from Education Week.
