    How City Colleges inflates graduation rates


    "City Colleges of Chicagohas its own version of “The Walking Dead.” Call it the Graduating Dead.
    The seven-campus school system is combing records for dropouts, including deceased ones, who may qualify for two-year diplomas, part of an all-out hunt to boost lagging graduation rates and polish a centerpiece of Mayor Rahm Emanuel's education agenda.

    In 2013, City Colleges adopted a “posthumous degree” program that made dead alums eligible for a degree or certificate, provided they had fulfilled three-fourths of the requirements. “This policy can be administered retroactively and applies also to students who have died prior to the effective date of this policy,” City Colleges documents say.


    The push also relies on Reverse Transfers credits, which allow non graduates who move to four-year institutions to qualify for City Colleges degrees. According to minutes of a trustees' committee meeting last year, then-Provost Vernese Edghill-Walden said about 500 degrees had been issued under the program in the 2013-14 school year; that's more than 10 percent of the 4,322 degrees awarded by City Colleges that year and close to the number (777) of full-time students who graduated.

    Emanuel also has touted rising graduation rates at Chicago Public Schools during his tenure. But earlier this month CPS conceded the increase had been exaggerated by undercounting dropouts."

    yeah, Illinois, probably the most corrupt state, is also famous for bringing people in from other countries and putting them up for president

    Stupid thing about govt. is that you have to show the money you get is worth it and usually have to spend it all and then some to get more in the next fiscal year.

    Nope, this is! it's an open ended scam of the century! Pay-offs, land grabs, corruption, and eco cronyism that's off the charts.
