Chicago Public Schools consider post-graduation plan requirement for all high school seniors

A Can of Coke

This week, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel started shopping around the idea that all high school seniors must have a post-graduation plan in order to receive a diploma. This plan would have four options: an acceptance letter to a 4-year college or university, an acceptance letter to a community college, enrollment in the United States military, or an acceptance letter to a trade school program.

“We want to make 14th grade universal,” he said in an interview on CBS This Morning. “That’s the new goal line.”

What do you think of this idea? Will it work? How will Chicago Public Schools reach that goal line for all of their kids, and what new supports will they need to put in place to make this requirement a reality?
