Elizabeth Shaw has been named editor-in-chief of Scholastic Parent & Child. Shaw came to Scholastic last year. She had previously served as executive editor of Parenting magazine.

“Elizabeth Shaw brings her expertise and unique voice to Scholastic Parent & Child, both as an editor and a parent,” said Jamie Engel, Scholastic Parent & Child’s VP and publisher, in a statement. ”The magazine is off to a promising start under her editorial guidance, and we are excited to see our magazine be the go-to resource to help parents raise happy and confident children.”
