In 2007, the Houghton Mifflin School Division merged with Harcourt School Publishers, effectively creating the premier provider of elementary school curricula.

Together as the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Education Group, the organization is now the preeminent publisher of K-12 educational resources and adult education materials and includes the Steck-Vaughn Adult Education and Workforce Development imprint.
