Lil Baby advocates to increase funding for art programs in schools

Lil Baby is lending his voice to the push for California schools to receive funding for the arts. At an Our Generation Music event held on Thursday (Oct. 6), he delivered impassioned remarks about the impact having access to creative outlets in school can have on students. “A couple schools they got arts and crafts programs, but a majority of schools in the Atlanta Public Schools that I was in they don’t,” said the “Right On” rapper. He spoke alongside Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine, and former Los Angeles Unified Schools Superintendent Austin Beutner at a Proposition 28 panel at Santa Monica High School. According to The Sacramento Bee, if passed, the proposition would provide LA schools with between $800 million to $1 billion in additional funding. The publication stated, “Just 1 in 5 California public schools have a full-time music or arts teacher, depriving millions of students of the opportunity.
