Between 2007 and 2013, our students’ high school graduation rate rose from 57 percent to 82 percent--great progress along the way to our goal of 100 percent college-ready and 100 percent college-bound. Congrats to Chicago Public Schools on this achievement. Now let’s finish the job. More: http://bit.ly/1fuiaQ4

What possible reason could there be to make "100% college-bound"? Have we decided that we have no use for trades in Chicago anymore? There are students for whom college would be a terrible waste of money. Trades, military, artists, entrepreneurs, etc. are all options that don't require college and are vital out our society. When we put so much emphasis on college we discount those kids who just don't need it.

Happy Earth Day, Chicago! In efforts to keep our city green, we have retrofitted 7,820 residential units across the city. Through simple actions such as upgrading to energy efficient lighting or installing air sealing and insulation, these retrofits will help residents save over $3.8 million in annual energy costs.
