9-Year-Old Gives Amazing Speech About Chicago School Closings
Yesterday, Chicago Schools closed 50 schools, making it the district with the most closings in the country. But there’s one person who really wants to do something about it. His name is Asean Johnson and he’s only 9 years old.
At a rally protesting the school closings, the displaced student brought the crowd to its feet with just a three-minute speech. We can’t believe how eloquent this kid and how much he underestands about the situation. He calls the closings of struggling schools in low-income, predominantly black neighborhoods racist. He ends with the chant, “Education is a right! That is why we have to fight!” We can’t wait to see what this kid does when he grows up.
