Why don't schools teach hip-hop culture?
Bettina Love is an author, scholar and education professor at the University of Georgia. She is also an upcoming fellow at the W.E.B Dubois Research Center at Harvard University.
I came across a talk by Love today, and, well, it kind of blew me away. I've been thinking for a while now that hip-hop is an under-utilized tool in schools. But Love's argument here is the strongest case I've seen so far. It's worth watching 'til the end.
