6. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt now embedding workers in Detroit school system.
I am amazed at how quickly things are happening in Detroit schools. Not just charter school operators and the huge foundations....but now textbook publishers.

"THE CAUSE: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Publishing, the world's largest publisher of
educational materials for pre-kindergarten
through high school, held a one-day mass
volunteer effort in the district Feb. 9 to launch a partnership with DPS.

BACKGROUND: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is
embarking on a multi-year partnership with DPS
to provide Destination: Detroit, a districtwide
program that is to reshape how DPS approaches
curriculum, lesson planning and instruction.

This is the first time Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
has provided such an integrated offering of
resources, and the hope is to make DPS a
national model for how K-12 districts will
educate in the future.

The company is embedding 10 full-time support
staff in the district to manage the system. "
