During five years of consulting, I have worked with large and small publishers including Harcourt Achieve (now a part of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) and McGraw-Hill on state adoptions in 2006, 2007, and 2009. I have also worked with numerous smaller companies seeking advice on a very complex state adoption process.
