Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a new proposal that would require students to develop a post-high school plan before receiving a diploma. CBS News reports:
“Under the proposal, all Chicago Public School students starting with this year’s freshman class would have to show an acceptance letter to a four-year university, a community college, a trade school or apprenticeship, an internship, or a branch of the armed services in order to receive their high school diploma.”
Emanuel’s plan allows some students to apply for waivers under special circumstances. The lens of privilege is so thick, y’all.
