In well over 130 cities and towns and 78 Indiana counties, 24 states, and the District of Columbia, Doug Martin’s book Hoosier School Heist: How Corporations and Theocrats Stole Democracy From Public Education is exposing the billionaires, theocrats, corporations, scandals, corruption, crony capitalism, and money behind so-called school reform in Indiana. In her blurb to the book, Diane Ravitch, a New York University research professor of education, best-selling author, and former US Assistant Secretary of Education, says that Doug Martin’s Hoosier School Heist is “one of the most frightening works I have read about the corporate reform takeover of public education” ever. Speaking of Martin’s research (which has been or will soon be used by or featured in the Washington Post Answer Sheet, ABC's Nightline, and the Associated Press), Edd Doerr, in the Voice of Reason: The Journal of Americans for Religious Liberty, says “Hoosier School Heist rates five stars, up there with such other important recent books as those by Diane Ravitch, Mercedes Schneider, David Berliner and Gene Glass, and Chris and Sarah Lubienski.” Presented with a “Supporting Public Education” award from the North Central Indiana School Study Council and honorary membership in the Montgomery County League of Women Voters, Dr. Doug Martin has spoken at union events, libraries, universities, and on national and state radio shows like Just Let Me Teach , the Rick Smith Show, the National Council on Educating Black Children’s program, and Amos Brown’s Afternoons with Amos.
