From the Chicago Tribune: Mayor Rahm Emanuel said he wants to require Chicago public school students to get letters of acceptance from a two- or four-year college, a branch of the armed forces or a trade program in order to graduate from high school, he announced Wednesday.
Also, what about students with disabilities? Many of these kids cannot get into college, the military or trade program. What happens to them? They don't get a diploma but just get a certificate of attendance?
