Chicago parents are outraged after an elementary school substitute teacher administered an educational curriculum and test on rapper Chief Keef that quizzed kids on the rapper’s age when he dropped out of school and the name of his featured track with Kanye West.
“I had never heard of him. But after careful research I found out that his music is about having sex, using the ‘B’ word, anti-police and supporting gangs,” Katrina Sanders told the Chicago Sun-Times.
The lesson was administered in a sixth grade music class at John Fiske Elementary School on Chicago’s South Side. Since, the school told the Sun-Times, the project was suspended by the principal, saying this is not “age-appropriate material.”
Sanders released a YouTube video showing the test that her son was given on Chief Keef. In the video she also notes that he was previously asked to do an assignment on Chris Brown.
While the 20-year-old Keef may be popular with Chicago’s youth, parents may not widely consider him an appropriate role model for studying.
Earlier this year, Keef faced off against mayor Rahm Emanuel, who said the rapper’s proposed hologram concert would pose a “significant safety risk” to the city. Keef had promoted the concert as an event to raise money for families affected by violence as well as charities working to stop the violence in Chicago’s South Side.
