Chance sits down with Gov. Rauner and urges him to use his executive power to give the Chicago's children the resources they need to be successful.
Chance the Rapper said.
"Our talks were unsuccessful." Rauner, Chance said, was unwilling to budge without caveats and ultimatums.
He states later on..
"Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positioning," Chance said. "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."
Chance the Rapper wants to see the city step and do their jobs.
"I'm here because I just want people to do their jobs," Chance told the Chicago Sun-Times and other reporters Friday after the meeting.
