John Legend Brings Attention to Schools & Prisons at Politico Discussion
John Legend suits up while attending the Politico event to kick-off the 2015 White House Correspondents‘ weekend at Longview Gallery on Friday (April 24) in Washington, D.C.
During the evening, the 36-year-old singer, who also performed, chatted about civil rights and the criminal justice system.
“You can’t cost-cut your way to better schools and pre-K for our kids and better counseling in the schools,” John shared. “But it’s not just a matter of dealing with schools. Communities have to be taken into account as well.”
He added, “As soon as [kids] slip through the cracks, … melts away, and we turn them into villains, we lock them up for a long time.”
