The pair had a 30-minute conversation about funding for Chicago Public Schools. "I asked him about funding CPS with that $215 million that was discussed in May of previous year and was vetoed in December over, you know, political arguments and (stuff)".

"If all your publications that you guys work for and the global, national publications out there - Complex, Billboard, people that, you know what I'm saying, post about me walking down the street and (expletive) - if you guys could give a comprehensive history on how we ended up here, that would be helpful", he said.

"Good exchange of views on what the options are, what the possibilities are", he told the Chicago Tribune, adding that he shared Chance's passion for "getting quickly more mone for CPS right now".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic vs Eric Cantona: How the stats stack up
Ibrahimovic is not only United's most potent attacking threat, he's also crucial to the cause for his impact in the dressing room. Zlatan Ibrahimovic improved his tally at Manchester United to 26 goals with goals in the EFL Cup final.


Chance told reporters, "I'm here because I just want people to do their jobs". On Twitter, Chance thanked the governor and asked to meet with him to discuss the sorry state of public school in Chance's native Chicago.

"We need to give notice to principals, to teachers, to parents who need to make plans", said David DeBruin, a Jenner & Block attorney who flew in from Washington, D.C., to represent the Chicago Board of Education in court. The meeting came about as a result of a congratulatory tweet from Gov. Rauner after Chance won three Grammys earlier this month. I have power in some ways; you have great power in other ways. A school-funding deal for Chicago and districts across the state is frequently mentioned as part of a "grand bargain" between Rauner and the Democrat-controlled legislature that would end a two-year stalemate over the state budget.

The schools were supposed to get $215 million in a proposed budget. "I'm cautiously optimistic that we can". Chance got that meeting today, and he did not walk away satisfied. The rapper requested that national music publications give "a comprehensive history on how we ended up here". "Monday morning I'll have a plan".
