PostSubject: Chicago’s New Education Plan Falls Short   Mon Feb 26, 2018 5:21 am

Soon, graduates of Chicago public high schools will have to prove that they have a plan for the future in order to obtain a diploma. Whether this will help or hurt students and their families has been hotly debated recently, and all sides have valid points. What it ultimately boils down to is that while this new requirement probably isn’t going to hurt more students than it’s going to help, it is far from an effective way to help schools that are already struggling to stay afloat.

The requirement is well-intentioned; it seeks to help more high school graduates consider higher education a valid option. The goal is to send more students to school so that they have the potential to earn more money and to avoid or escape poverty. Students who live in rough neighborhoods grow up living around crime. Many of them were raised by parents unable to emphasize the importance of education because they themselves were unable to graduate high school or college. On a basic level, the new requirement facing Chicago high schools sounds like a good idea: Require students to at least apply to schools and jobs, and there’s a higher chance that they will go to work or go to school.
However, as this article discusses, the students attending many Chicago public high schools are not receiving sufficient support to make the transition into a successful post-graduation life the least bit smooth. Layoffs and budget cuts are placing an immense burden on schools that weren’t doing well to begin with, meaning that most students are unable to get a satisfactory education at the high schools they attend.
