Media: Meet AP Education Reporter Josh Lederman
He's totally new to education and he's only been with AP since June (previously The Hill). He'll continue doing political and energy stories, he tells me -- just like NatJournal's Fawn Johnson covers immigration and transportation as well as education. Christine Armario is going to continue writing national education stories. It's also unclear what happens when Kimberly (@khefling) Hefling comes back from maternity leave.
But all that's way off in the future. Quick! Hurry! Follow him on Twitter and barrage him with your story pitches and self-importance. Drop names and fish for shared interests. You're politically savvy and youth-knowledgeable. Lederman can't really be expected do education journalism if he doesn't know you. You knew him first. You can tell him who to trust, and quote, and all of that.
