    Rahm Emanuel to require post-high school plan to get diploma.

    Apparently, there is no level of control over the lives of his constituents that is too much. If this passes, your rightfully earned high school diploma will be held in ransom until you meet extra requirements.

    Emanuel wants to add a CPS graduation requirement: Get acceptance letter - Chicago Tribune

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants Chicago public high school students to show they have a plan for what's next before they can get a diploma.

    Emanuel's proposal would add one more big item to the graduation checklist for high school seniors: proof they've been accepted into college or the military, or a trade or a "gap-year" program. The requirement would also be satisfied if the student has a job or a job offer.

    What is stopping them from changing plans right after they get the diploma?

    Revoked? Who knows? If he's willing to go this far then why not revoke it?

    Do employers actually check to see if someone has a High School diploma?

    There are many things on applications, that is one of them in many cases.

    That's insane.
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    I do if the employee turns out to be a problem child. Falsifying a resume gives me an easy reason to terminate them.
