Magazines: RIP, Grantland

Screen Shot 2015-10-31 at 10.05.37 PMOstensibly a sports-themed site, Grantland.com was actually full of culture writing. And some of the best writing about education explores its cultural aspects.

For example: The Teacher (Maya Angelou) and the Students (Dave Chapelle, Common)A Teacher Abuses His Power Over a Drummer in ‘Whiplash’What ‘Dangerous Minds’ and Other Movies Get Right and Wrong About Teachers.

That last one, by Shea Serrano, is particularly about pop culture and K-12 education.

Alas, the ESPN-funded version of the site is no more (though many of its writers have followed Bill Simmons to HBO).

There were occasional references to the site here: Neighborhood Segregation The Central Issue In New HBO Show"Breaking Bad" Will Solve All Our STEM ProblemsHomey The Substitute Teacher.

And a few more on Twitter.
