The controversial Chicago mayor has advanced a new proposal requiring all high school seniors who want to get a diploma to show that they have post-graduation plans by providing written proof that they have been accepted — not merely applied to — by a college, a gap-year program or the military. Proof of a job works too
Students could apply to community college, get accepted, show the proof, get the diploma and not attend if they didn’t want. That makes one wonder why Emanuel raised the issue in the first place, opening himself up to enormous criticism from people saying he is out of touch with how many of the residents in the city he leads live.

Rahm Emanuel is an idiot.
What's the current graduation rate in Chicago?
What's the current death toll of gun crime in Chicago?
Isn't Chicago another sanctuary city?
Isn't Illinois bankrupt?
Rahm Emanuel isn't an idiot. I apologize.
He is a ####tard.
