Chance the Rapper Inspires Again

chance-the-rapper-2016-recChance the Rapper was already Chicago’s hero…

but he just keeps spreading the love, and we can’t get enough.

I alluded to some of the financial anxiety
that Chicago teachers are experiencing due to the Illinois budget crisis.

Chance the Rapper just donated $1,000,000 (yeah, one MILLION dollars) to Chicago Public Schools. His motivation?

“Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positioning. If the governor does not act, CPS will be forced to end school 13 days early, which means over 380,000 kids will not have adult supervised activities in June and could possibly be put in harm’s way.”

To protect the children.

Chance is from the neighborhood I teach in, by the way. They deserve every bit of love and support he is giving them.

Thank you, Chance!
