Chicago high school students may soon need to create a plan for their future in order to graduate.That is pure bullshit. A high school disploma is a certificate of completing a set of requirements. Supposedly the recipients can read, do their numbers and they know some other stuff, as well. If some kids want to go to work somewhere, armed only with their high-school diploma, that should be up to them.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel appeared on “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday to discuss his new proposal, which would require students to develop a post-high school plan before receiving a diploma.
Chicago would be the first city to adopt such a requirement if the measure is approved by the city’s board of education.
This could be a page out of the Trumpist playbook, Distraction 101, to get people to talk about Chicago in reference to something other than their homicide rate and corrupt police force (hell, the whole city). Emanuel is just the sort of political lowlife who would use kids as political propaganda tools.
I predict that this proposal will soon sink out of sight. And hopefully, it'll take that corrupt fuck with it.
