Good attendance brings G.O.O.D. Music for a Detroit-area high school. Rapper Big Sean will return to his hometown and visit Lincoln High School on Monday (May 14) to serve as their “Principal for the Day.” The school won the “Get Schooled” contest for increasing their attendance record by nearly 9 percent during the school year.

During his one-day term as principal, Big Sean will talk with students, co-teach a couple of classes and participate in an assembly for the student body at Lincoln High.

“Showing up to school, all day, every day, is one of the most important things students can do to reach their educational goals and to go on to success later in life,” said Big Sean. “I am so proud of my hometown of Detroit for tackling attendance issues head on and I am so excited to celebrate the achievements of the students who worked so hard throughout the attendance challenge.”

Big Sean credits his grandmother for keeping him in school even though he wanted to hang out and rap. “She was a real advocate for school, but I didn’t want to go school, I wanted to do music,” he said. “I had a full scholarship to go to Michigan State. I graduated with a 3.7 [grade point average] from high school but I put all of that aside to do music. To her, education was a way to a better life, but she’s happy now and my family is happy.”

And the students are going to be happy when Big Sean rocks the assembly stage at Lincoln High.

In the end, it’s cool to stay in school.
