The Illinois Campaign to Prepare Tomorrow’s Parents

TO: Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich

Illinois Interim State Superintendent of Education, Dr. Christopher Koch
Parenting is the most important job we have to do as humans and as citizens…If we offer (high school) classes in auto mechanics and civics, why not parenting? A lot of what happens to children that’s bad derives from ignorance…Parents go by folklore or by what they’ve heard or by their instincts, all of which can be very wrong.”

Dr. Alvin F. Poussaint, Professor Of Psychiatry
Harvard Medical School

Preparing young people to become caring, competent parents may be the single most effective way to prevent child abuse and other violence, increase mental health, advance school preparedness, and achieve academic success for future generations.

The Illinois Campaign to Prepare Tomorrow’s Parents and the national organization Prepare Tomorrow's Parents have launched an annual campaign to ensure that all Illinois children and teens are prepared for the responsibilities of future parenting. Governor Blagojevich and Dr. Koch, we urge you to consider seriously the value of parenting classes for children and teens in Illinois schools.
