Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel: No HS diploma without a plan for graduation April 5, 2017

* Recently mayor Rahm Emanuel is pushing for a new plan to get more kids to college. Before any CPS students can graduate and receive their diploma they must present a plan of what they will be doing after high school. The ideal plan is for the kids to go to some sort of college, 4 year or 2 years.

In the 2015-2016 school year 57.9% of CPS were in enrolled and attending college, but for Rahm those numbers are not good enough he said. "We want to make sure our kids do not see graduation from high school as the end point, but all of them have a plan and all of them have a specific acceptance on how to go to post-high-school education,” Emanuel said

This story is important because if anyone plans on transferring to public school they will now they have to be prepared to extend their education beyond high school and not just expect to drop out.

In conclusion this story will eventually have a big impact on kids all over Chicago. It will also be a good cause towards further educating kids and producing more scholars. This can also impact parents and require more attention to their kids and there careers.
