Chicago, College, and Earned It: Chicago Will Withhold High
 School Diplomas Unless
 Students Have a Job,
 College, or Military Plans
๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿพ THOUGHTS? "Mayor Rahm Emanuel has made Chicago Public Schools the first big-city system to require a job, a college acceptance letter, gap-year program enrollment or enlistment in the military as a condition of graduating from high school. Aside from the obvious issues with the school system potentially withholding a diploma even if a student earned it, detractors say Chicago doesnโ€™t have the resources to pull it off, mostly because of the mayor. The Washington Post spoke with school administrators about the plan, which was approved by the Board of Education in late May, and will be begin to affect incoming sophomores planning to graduate in 2020. Graduation rates have improved in Chicago since 2012, with nearly 74 percent of students finishing high school in four years, but they are still below the national average of 83%. Last year, the district laid off 1,000 teachers and staff members. In 2015, the Chicago Tribune reported that the financial issues faced by CPS were largely the fault of Emanuel, who delayed making payments to teacher pensions or searching for new revenue streams, and dropped fiscal responsibility measures implemented in the mid-โ€™90s, when the state gave Chicagoโ€™s mayor control over the district following emergency state management. The Tribune notes Emanuel was just one in a line of mayors who failed the needs of CPS, but his decisions have put the district in a difficult position to implement this new requirement."
