quinnGovernor Pat Quinn hopes to get more parents involved in their children’s education with a new “Bring Your Parents To School Day” in Illinois.
Quinn signed the new legislation Saturday before the kick-off to the Bud Billiken Parade in the Bronzeville neighborhood.
The measure allows schools to let parents and guardians attend class with their kids and meet with teachers and administrators.
It will take place the first Monday in October, every school year.
But parents will have to wait until next year, because the new law doesn’t take effect until January 1st.
