So, who is Gradgrind? Gradgrind’s is named after Mr. Gradgrind from Charles Dickens’ novel Hard Times. Well-known today for his emphasis on the need for “fact, fact, fact” in education, by the end of the book Mr. Gradgrind learns that overemphasis on the observable, the factual, and the quantifiable has left his own children shadows of themselves. In many ways, his character embodies that age-old tension between the institution and the individual, the political and the personal.
