Chance The Rapper’s meeting with Illinois’ Governor Rauner did not go well

Earlier this week, Chance the Rapper announced that he was having a meeting with Illinois Governor Rauner to talk about education, specifically Chicago Public Schools.  Chicago Public School’s has been having budgetary issues for quite some time, but currently the school year will end 20 days early if the State of Illinois does not provide more funding.

After a cancellation due to severe weather, the meeting happened today. It didn’t go well, with Chance saying Gov. Rauner gave “vague answers.”

MTV News provided more information about the situation.

Although obviously flustered, Chance left a positive message on his Twitter.

 

No matter what your political party, education should not be a luxury, and CPS needs funding now.
