    Global education leader Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has secured multiple adoptions
    of its groundbreaking customized education solutions throughout Latin America.
    From Ecuador and Chile to Panama, Costa Rica and Mexico, the global education
    leader’s localized Spanish-language reading and mathematics programs have become
    a prime choice for educators.

    “Educators around the world have long turned to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to
    provide the best research-based education materials,” said Terry Nealon,
    International Publishers senior vice president, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
    “These latest successes in Latin America further solidify our firm reputation as
    the most respected source of innovative learning solutions worldwide.”

    school-costa-ricaThe Company has recently authorized Librería y Papelería Guayaquil as the
    exclusive distributor of its core curriculum digital education solutions in
    Ecuador, including Destination Math, Destino Matemáticas, Destination Reading,
    Destino Lectura, the Edmark House Series and Earobics. Librería y Papelería
    Guayaquil, previously an authorized distributor of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
    print solutions, will use this strengthened partnership to promote both print
    and digital offerings by delivering best-in-class blended solutions to
    Ecuadorian schools.

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has also signed a new contract with partner Vernet to
    distribute its solutions in Central America. The new contract extends the two
    companies’ existing relationship, which originally covered Puerto Rico. Vernet
    has successfully distributed Destino Matemáticas, Destino Lectura and other
    programs in Puerto Rico and is already making great strides toward establishing
    new business in Central America.

    Finally, the Company’s Moving into English program – a bilingual language
    acquisition program that provides teachers with flexible, intuitive and
    language-rich resources to help improve students’ phonemic awareness, phonics,
    language exploration, comprehension and fluency – has met success throughout
    Latin America. Panama’s Ministry of Education chose Moving into English as a
    leading program for its public schools national bilingual project, “English for
    Life,” and Costa Rica’s Ministry of Education will begin a Moving Into English
    pilot program next January.
