McGraw-Hill (MHE) is a learning science company and one of the "big three" educational publishers[2][3] that provides customized educational content, software, and services for pre-K through postgraduate education. The company also provides reference and trade publications for the medical, business, and engineering professions. McGraw-Hill Education currently operates in 28 countries, has more than 5,000 employees globally, and offers products and services to over 135 countries in 60+ languages.

Formerly a division of The McGraw-Hill Companies, now S&P Global, McGraw-Hill Education was divested from McGraw Hill Financial and acquired by Apollo Global Management in March 2013 for $2.4 billion in cash.[4][5][6][7][8]

Based on the growing demand for classroom technology, McGraw-Hill has transitioned from a print-based business model to one based on delivering digital content and technology-enabled learning solutions.[9] This shift has accelerated in recent years with an increased focus on developing adaptive learning systems that enable classroom teaching to come closer to a one-to-one student-teacher interaction. These systems allow personalized learning by assessing each student's skill level and using data to determine how each can progress through lessons most effectively. McGraw-Hill Education provides digital products and services to over 11 million users. In 2013, the company acquired the ALEKS Corporation[10] and after acquiring 20 percent equity stake in Area9 ApS went on to acquire the company, its development partner on the LearnSmart Advantage suite.[11] In 2015 MHE opened a new R&D office in Boston's innovation district.[12][13] In September 2016 the company acquired adaptive learning technology and content provider Redbird Learning.[14] The company currently offers over 1,500 adaptive products in higher education and digital formats for its major K-12 programs.

  • ✪ The NEW McGraw-Hill Education


McGraw-Hill Education is a really exciting combination of two things. First a 125 year old company renowned for delivering fantastic high quality education for more than a century. Inside of that traditional publisher we've now created a brand new business. A business that applies learning science to changing lives. A learning science company is a much more apt descriptor for the McGraw-Hill Education of now. Learning science is a phrase that we are using to describe what it is that we use and apply to help people learn. So we think about how do we use technology to bring that content or deliver that content in ways we've never been able to before. We are focused on student achievement. We're focused on outcomes. Technology is one of the ways we can improve outcomes. And improve achievement. The science comes in the fact that we adapt to the learner, are able to engage them, and then measure those results. This is revolutionary because suddenly we're able to cater to the individual. We make things that are personal and personalized that they adapt to what it is that the students already know. So we try to understand where the students are based on what their needs are; we give them instruction to help fill that gap. It goes beyond the student just getting a grade back. It's actionable. That's really exciting. We make it accessible wherever the student is. So mobile - it's a big part of what we do. When I think back to my education it was really one-size-fits-all. Today's classroom and today's student is nothing like we were when we were kids. We can release new features in really, really rapid timelines. So how good is it to know that the products that we are creating. Today have a rapid positive impact tomorrow. Not sometime down the future, but literally tomorrow. I think that a lot of what we do is we enable people to move up that social ladder. So that they can have a better life. We know that the technology is making a difference because the teachers and instructors who use it. Because the children who use it in K-12; the young adults who are using it in college respond to us and say "This is helping me." We are now able to actually say we can be a part of the solution. We can help those institutions be more successful for their students. That is the biggest difference for us. We can help people learn better.


Corporate history

McGraw-Hill Education traces its history back to 1888 when James H. McGraw, co-founder of the company, purchased the American Journal of Railway Appliances. He continued to add further publications, eventually establishing The McGraw Publishing Company in 1899. His co-founder, John A. Hill, had also produced several technical and trade publications and in 1902 formed his own business, The Hill Publishing Company.

In 1909 the two men agreed upon an alliance and combined the book departments of their publishing companies into The McGraw-Hill Book Company. John Hill served as President, with James McGraw as Vice-President. 1917 saw the merger of the remaining parts of each business into The McGraw-Hill Publishing Company, Inc.[15]

In 1980, McGraw-Hill Education paid the African American writer and civil rights activist James Baldwin a $200,000 advance for his unfinished book Remember This House, a memoir of his personal recollections of civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.[55] Following his death, the company sued his estate to recover the advance they had paid him for the unfinished book. The lawsuit was dropped by the company in 1990, citing a desire not to cause distress to Baldwin's family.

In October 2015, McGraw-Hill Education was accused of whitewashing history after it published a caption in a geography textbook referring to American slaves as "workers".[56] The company quickly apologized, updated the digital version of the materials, and offered schools replacement texts at no charge.[57] Since the controversy began in Houston, it has been linked to broader controversies about conservative texts at the Texas Education Agency.[58]
