Excerpt from Wacker's Manual of the Plan of Chicago: Municipal Economy

Chicago is destined to become the center of the modern world, if the opportunities in her reach are intelligently realized, and if the city can receive a sufficient supply of trained and enlightened citizens.

Actuated by this belief, the author has mapped out the part Chicago school chil dren are to play in creating the greater Chicago of the future. Chicago must grow to conform to a scientific plan to replace the makeshift that has tried to keep pace with the city's development in the past and to make this possible it must have a citizenship trained in its duties. A large proportion of the graduates from our schools remain in Chicago for their professional or business lives, and this book is intended to fit them to take an intelligent part as future citizens of a great city in carrying out the Plan of Chicago.
