Kanye West & EDin08 To Urge Presidential Candidates To Focus On Education In New PSAs

Kanye West and EDin08 have teamed up to promote Education in 2008. Kanye will be featured in new television public service announcements, urging the presidential candidates to address America's  education crisis and dropout epidemic. Nationwide, 1.2 million students drop out of high school every year.

The Kanye West Foundation (KWF) was established in 2003 to motivate youth to stay in school and graduate. Its signature initiative, Loop Dreams, uses music production to motivate youth to remain encouraged and excited about learning. ED in '08 is an unprecedented up to $60 million nonpartisan movement, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and The Eli Broad Foundation, which calls on all presidential candidates to improve America's public schools and make education reform a top priority on the campaign trail.
