HMH’s illustrious history, driven by a relentless desire by the industry’s top professionals to provide the finest research-based, scientifically proven products, is what sets our company apart as a leader in the educational marketplace.
As a leading educational publisher of print and electronic products, HMH is continually revising its product lines in order to remain on the cutting-edge of the field. This requires large-scale, internal operations that range from research and product development to product management, sales operations, customer service, and client support.

A vital partner in the current global education reform movement, the Education Group publishes a comprehensive set of best-in-class educational solutions, ranging from research-based textbook programs to instructional technology to standards-based assessments for students and educators. The HMH Education Group comprises three subgroups:
1. Comprehensive Curriculum Group, led by Rita Schaefer, focusing on the provision and support of basal textbooks and related services;
