Media: Atlantic Adding New Education Channel

So a little birdie tells me that the already-robust Atlantic.com site (which someone once described as Yahoo! News for college educated types) is adding a new Education channel sometime soon, along with existing channels like Politics, Business, Tech, etc.  

No word yet on when the channel launches, how robust its efforts were going to be.  Other outlets -- HuffingtonPost and Politico among others -- have tried to mount a strong education vertical with mixed results.

It's going to be run by editor Eleanor Barkhorn (@eleanorbarkhorn) who is - yes! -- a Princeton graduate and TFA alum so please begin to stereotype and judge her immediately that never gets old.

The site has long run education news under the National channel (often written by EWA's Emily Richmond), and partner publication National Journal has its own Education Insiders page.

They were looking for a fellow to help out with the site in July.  Presumably they've found someone by now.  Based on the naming of other Atlantic channels, I predict the Twitter feed will be @atlanticED.
