Mayor Rahm “Murder” Emanuel: No high school diploma without acceptance letter


Since when did Rahm determine that he could be in charge of other kids’ future plans? Leave that to the kid and his family.

From Chicago high school students may soon need to create a plan for their future in order to graduate.

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.

“We live in a period of time where you earn what you learn,” Emanuel said. “The school system of K through 12 is not applicable to the world and the economy and the world that our high school students are graduating to. So we’re moving to a pre-K to college model.”

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.

“Around 62 percent of our kids are already either accepted into college or accepted into community college, and our goal is to make sure nobody spikes the ball at 12th grade,” Emanuel said on Wednesday. “We want to make 14th grade universal. That’s the new goal line.”

Chicago Public Schools students would have to show acceptance into continuing education, a trade or the armed services in order to graduate from high school.

Emanuel said the plan is a continuation of the city’s efforts to provide more access to higher education, including free community college for students with a B average or better.

“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.

The plan would allow students in special circumstances to waive the requirement. Undocumented immigrants illegal aliens, English language learners and currently incarcerated students would be able to apply for a waiver with Chicago Public Schools.

  2. These socialists want to have their say on everything, what we eat, what we do, next they are going to try and infiltrate the bedrooms. The students should decide what they want to do whether they want to be a doctor or a street sweeper, and the parents are to support their decisions, the government to stay out of it.

  3. Rahm ISRAEL Emmanuel is a joke.
    1) most community colleges are babysitting student loan scams. Average grade is now A-. Instructors are fired if they fail students. most instructors are so poorly paid they qualify for food stamps. Administrators are paid exorbitant salaries proportionate to enrollment. students entertained with sex courses, games, etc. until their financial aid runs out. banks get rich on student loans.,
    2) Rahm’s life plan essay for students is a farce. In the early 1980s as a new teacher I graded thousands of senior essays
    required for graduation. (80% of 9th graders dropped out before reaching their senior year.) Most of the essays were what
    I like to call “word salad.” A verb here, a noun there, an adjective thrown in for spice. Incoherent. The rare articulate essay was a cause for excitement.

    Emmanuel speaks the truth in this much: The current business model no longer works. Long Story Short: This is because the judges and the politicians have done everything they could to destroy parental authority. Hell, they’ve destroyed almost all respect for any authority whatsoever. (I believe the episode of Atty. General Bobby Kennedy ordering Alabama George Wallace away from the schoolhouse door, was, not so ironically, the watershed moment, the “chapter heard around the world,” so to speak.)
    Be that as it may, Rahm Emmanuel is or was a Mossad agent, and we need a new Federal Law, WITH TEETH, that will absolutely prohibit any dual citizenship of elected or appointed office for members of ANY foreign intelligence agencies. (And getting rid of the CIA would be a necessary move, also).
    Rahm Emmanuel is only treating the symptom here, and he’s too smart by half: He doesn’t know this, and he doesn’t know that he doesn’t know. That’s because he’s an educated fool from an educated school! And he should change his administration’s name to MURDER, INC.!

  6. I wondered when they’d get around to installing a mandatory enlistment. Kinda on the Israel model I bet. A big war will cull a lot of the social warriors from amongst us, now they can’t get out of dying for their country by saying their gay or being female.

  7. The drop-out rate and the number of students who fail to graduate high school aren’t high enough in Chicago. Emmanuel’s new proposal should takle care of that problem. Both should sky-rocket under his proposal. Would a plan to sell drugs and to shoot other drug dealers and innocent bystanders be an acceptable plan?

  10. Hey Rahm, how about you do your job and make your city safe enough so the kids can go to school.
    It is none of your business to tell the kids what their dreams will be. It is their dreams.
    You should be tossed out of office for dereliction of duty and mismanagement.
