Chicago Mayor Trying to Fix Flaw in Graduation Plan

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is moving to remedy a key defect of his new graduation requirement for students at Chicago Public high schools: a shortage of guidance counselors to help students develop the required “plan for post-secondary success.”

Addressing students at Monday’s Mikva Challenge MLK Youth Summit, Emanuel said the key to alleviating that shortage lies in forging an even stronger partnership between CPS and the City Colleges of Chicago.
