It used to be that high schools were held accountable for how many students they graduated. In Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel took that a step further when he announced this spring that to get a high school diploma, seniors must have a firm written plan for what they are going to do after graduation.

This segment aired on August 9, 2017.
