Actions definitely speak louder than words. Chance the Rapper is a true testament to that. The Chicago native recently had a meeting with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner. The focus of the meeting was the Chicago Public School System and what can be done to help it improve. When all was said and done, Chance was not completely pleased with the outcome. Instead of just walking away, he decided to put his money where his mouth is. He pulled up to Westwood Elementary and held a press conference that could potentially change a lot of little lives. He decided to start his own financial assistance and donated $1 million to the Chicago Public School System.
“Gov. Rauner still won’t commit to giving Chicago kids a chance without caveats or ultimatums.”
Giving a school district a million bucks is not a small feat. Chance decided to donate the money after the Governor offered up no solution to help Chicago’s Public System. Education funding seems to be a big problem for the Chicago school system and Gov. Rauner made no mention of plans to help. With that, Chance took matters into his own pockets and donated the money directly to the school. Hopefully, it stays out of the politicians pockets and really helps build up the cities failing schools. If other artists/celebs/athletes follow suit, the Chicago Public School System could really improve, giving the youth a better chance at success. Check out the donation below.
