Description

As Mayor Rahm Emanuel ran for a second term, one of his main talking points was that during his first term graduation rates at the city's high schools shot up by 10 percent. But the rates he touted were inflated. The Better Government Association and WBEZ-Chicago Public Radio found that thousands of dropouts were wrongly labeled as transfers. Because of these reports, Emanuel and his school leaders were forced to revise down the graduation rates.
