Thousands of students in the US soon wont be able to graduate high school unless they can prove theyve lined up a job or apprenticeship, enlisted in the military, been accepted to college or joined a gap-year program.
The program, set to take take effect in Chicago in 2020, is supposed to get scholars in the citys struggling school system planning for the future early, Mayor Rahm Emanuel told the Washington Post.
We are going to help kids have a plan, because theyre going to need it to succeed, Emanuel said. You cannot have kids think that 12th grade is done.
A member of New York states education-policy board agreed that its good idea to prod high-school students to have a plan for the future but stopped short of making it a graduation requirement for Empire State high-schoolers.
Im concerned about making it a requirement if there arent job opportunities or you cant afford to go to college, said Board of Regents member Kathleen Cashin, a former New York City regional school superintendent.

Too bad Chicago and Illinois have no plans.
What if they don’t? They’ll make them stay in public-education prison? Don’t we have a Constitutional amendment about involuntary servitude?
Havee’jar be planning to deal crack when he be graduating.
“I’ll be a name taker with a clipboard then become a senator then president”
Lincoln freed the slaves.
Well, if it only applies to scholars it should only affect maybe a dozen people......it will be business as usual for the rest of what Chicongo skrewls turn out.
And then I will take a permanent vacation.
"Noooooooo!" (Darth Vader voice) "You belong to the Empire foreveeeeeeeer."
What about the other 35% who drop out before graduating?
Demand proof they have gang affiliation?
I’s gonna’ get my life t’gether, and become a rapper.
I would tell them “my plan, get the F outa here”.
What, are they saying sitting around on welfare, selling drugs and eating chiggun wangs all day isn’t a plan?
If I live to graduate high school, I plan to buy a bullet proof vest, hat, nut sack and gun detecting squirrel friend. I mean girl friend.
I be gon’ take over Shaquise’s turf, yo!
Plan yo’ mamma, honky.............
Maybe Chicago could open some ballet schools, submarine yards, political youth centers, family awareness camps, farms, and show these yutes how good the government is for them. This is a horrible plan and worse than socialism. This is pure Stalinism. God bless the sane ones in Illinois.
With communists, everything is by force.
I wonder how many will drop out and move the hell out of that festering rat hole.
So what if you just want to go and see the world? Write poetry under an oak tree in Colorado? No diploma?
In the article about the IL senate override of the governor's veto (house is/was pending), somebody said it has a clause in the bill to shaft the schools in the rest of the state to fund CPS.
