Chance's comments made clear that his views towards the governor have not changed, despite them talking again on the phone this weekend.
Thoughhe weight of Chicago is not Chance's responsibility alone, I look forward to hearing his plan today, and helping to mobilize any efforts to make sure kids receive the best schooling not only in Chicago, but DC, NY, and cities around the country.
'Logan': Adamantium claws laid to rest in style
Spoilers ahead! Logan's lack of a post-credits scene makes sense, as the movie's actual ending is pretty damn intense. Its worldwide total haul was US$783 million - more than any other R-rated film in history.
"Our kids should not be held hostage", he said, noting that CPS has stated that it may have to close schools almost two weeks early due to the district's pension gap.
For his part, Rauner said he asked the rapper to use his influence to help his cause. Hopefully Chance's selfless actions will inspire Kanye to take a break from making love to his own ego and do the same. The internet is already going insane with love and support for Chance's initiative. The Chicago school district's and teachers union's attempts to conflate money spent on pensions to money spent on children complicate the political debate while obfuscating the spending agendas, and ought to be resisted.

Chance the Rapper meets with IL governor about Chicago school system
This morning, Chance the Rapper met with IL governor Bruce Rauner to discuss the funding of Chicago Public Schools. The two men were initially scheduled to meet on Wednesday but had to reschedule due to storms in southern IL .
Although Chancellor Bennett's father is close to the controversial mayor, an anonymous source told the Chicago Sun-Times that the rapper is not coordinating with the mayor and even refused to meet with him before the announcement. This isn't about posturing. "This means over 380,000 kids will not have adult-supervised activities in June and could possibly be put in harm's way", he said. "Everybody and their mama knows what's going on in Chicago. But we're about to enhance the conversation", the rapper continued. Thousands of voters joined him in the march.
"The arts are essential to teach students the valuable lessons like practice makes ideal and small differences can have large effects". His father, Ken Williams-Bennett, was deputy chief of staff to Chicago's mayor and once worked for Barack Obama when he was a US senator from IL.
Taking to a podium in a Wescott Elemtary School classroom on Monday afternoon, Chance offered a short summary of his meeting with the Governor, but vowed not to let his frustration with the lack of urgency to fix the issue overshadow his promise to take further action.
