Schools Matter Welcomes Doug Martin!

Doug Martin’s Hoosier School Heist will be published by Brooks Publications in December.  Martin’s exposures of the corporate takeover of public education have appeared or been referenced in the Washington Post Answer Sheet, the Associated Press, Diane Ravitch's Blog, and other places.  Martin holds a PhD in literary prosody and nineteenth-century American literature from Oklahoma State University.  His first book, A Study of Walt Whitman’s Mimetic Prosody: Free-Bound and Full-Circle, was published by Edwin Mellon Press in 2004.

  1. As one of the "other places," I started commending Doug Martin and the Common Errant in 2011. Put his name in a 'search' on my site to see his wonderful, detailed exposes. He provides very very impressive documentation. I look forward to the book.
