SELECTED DETERMINANTS OF ADOLESCENT EDUCATIONAL EXPECTATIONS.
REHBERG, RICHARD A.
QUESTIONNAIRE DATA WERE USED TO DETERMINE THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ADOLESCENT EDUCATIONAL EXPECTIONS (DEPENDENT VARIABLE) AND PATERNAL EDUCATION, FAMILY SOCIAL STATUS, PARENTAL EDUCATIONAL PRESSURE, AND FAMILY SIZE (INDEPENDENT OF PREDICTOR VARIABLES). THE DATA WERE GATHERED FROM 2,852 MALE SOPHOMORES (HIGH SCHOOL), LIVING IN SIX MIDDLE-SIZE PENNSYLVANIA CITIES (POPULATIONS FROM 50,000 TO 100,000). USING ROSENBURG'S TEST FACTOR STANDARIZATION TECHNIQUE OF NONPARAMETRIC TABULAR PARTIAL ANALYSIS, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT EACH OF THE FOUR PREDICTOR VARIABLES REMAINED INDEPENDENTLY ASSOCIATED WITH THE DEPENDENT VARIABLE WHEN THE APPROPRIATE OTHER THREE WERE STATISTICALLY CONTROLLED. ON THE BASIS OF THIS ANALYSIS OF PARTIALS, A PROVISIONAL MODEL OF CAUSAL SEQUENCE WAS CONSTRUCTED. THIS MODEL POSITED THAT (1) PATERNAL EDUCATION IS A PARTIAL DETERMINANT OF THE SOCIAL STATUS OF THE FAMILY, (2) BOTH PATERNAL EDUCATION AND SOCIAL STATUS INFLUENCE ADOLESCENT EDUCATIONAL EXPECTATIONS THROUGH THE INTERVENING VARIABLE OF PARENTAL PRESSURE AND INDEPENDENTLY OF IT, AND (3) FAMILY SIZE SOMEHOW REDUCES BOTH THE FREQUENCY WITH WHICH PARENTS URGE CHILDREN TO CONTINUE THEIR EDUCATION BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL AND THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ANY GIVEN FREQUENCY LEVEL OF PARENTAL EDUCATIONAL PRESSURE.
