Intriguing First: Chicago: No Job, No Acceptance Letter = No High School Graduation

Scheduled to become effective a mere three years down the road, Chicago’s new future-plans requirement intrigues. My Q: ? a sufficient number of counselors to assist students with their future-planning chores ?

To graduate from a public high school in Chicago, students will soon have to meet a new and unusual requirement: They must show that they’ve secured a job or received a letter of acceptance to college, a trade apprenticeship, a gap year program or the military.
