Chance The Rapper is proving that he is not only a great GRAMMY award winning rapper, but an even greater person.
After having a meeting with the governor of Illinois, Bruce Rauner, last week about public education that didn’t go as well as Chance had hoped for, he took matters in to his own hands. Chance held a press conference at Wescott Elementary School in Chicago where he donated $1 million of his own money to the Public Schools of Chicago.
Chance said, “Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positions.” He spoke about the meeting with governor Rauner being filled with “vague” answers then shouted, “Do Your Job!”
Chance plans to talk to Common, another Chicago native, about additional funding. He also posted a link to his page to help support the Public Schools of Chiago. Check it out here.
Below is video from the press conference.
