Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools

I believe the Inkified Inc Scholarship Fund is a needed resource for CMS. This is the first time in Charlotte history that hip hop will be used to campaign education. I propose that CMS partner with Inkified Inc to provide this opportunity to at risk youth of all backgrounds within the school system.

Objective:

The popularity and influence of commercial hip hop has misguided a lot of at risk youth to believe that the hip hop music industry is a reliable and easily attainable career path. In reality it is designed to exploit and wholesale an unrealistic and negligent standard of living for corporate gain. Hip hop culture and the hip hop industry are insidiously two different gears. One is a corporate production and the other is artistic expression. The Inkified Inc Scholarship Fund values artistic expression and wants to give the youth an opportunity to express their writing skills through hip hop. We believe the sway of hip hop culture can be used to campaign education and challenge traditional creative writing platforms. A college education opens doors and provides opportunities to gain career skills. Unfortunately the reality is with rising cost of college tuitions it is sometimes discouraging to at risk youth to pursue higher education. This scholarship fund is a missing link that gives them a relatable motivation to consider creative writing as a career path. Hip hop is free information and creative expression; we can use it to encourage progressive reading and writing skills.

Signed,

Mason Parker

Petition supporters will play a major part in helping us get started. Any one who agrees with our vision please spread the word, we need to reach the masses in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. The Inkified Inc Scholarship Fund will be reviewed by the CMS board to be considered a partnership program. The more supporters we have will show CMS the value of partnering with Inkified Inc.
