EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT OF PARENTS AS RELATED TO STUDENTS' FEELINGS ABOUT SELF AND FAMILY.
BARGER, BEN; HALL, EVERETTE,
QUESTIONNAIRES ASSESSING STUDENTS' FEELINGS CONCERNING RESPONSIBILITY AND AUTONOMY, VOCATIONAL CHOICE, ACCOMPLISHMENTS, ACTIVITIES, PARENTAL RELATIONSHIPS, SELF-DISCLOSURE, SELF-CONCEPTS, AND CERTAIN AREAS OF FAMILY BACKGROUND WERE ADMINISTERED TO ALL NEW LOWER-DIVISION STUDENTS ENTERING THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA IN SEPTEMBER 1966. THE TOTAL SAMPLE, MALES AND FEMALES SEPARATELY, WAS DIVIDED INTO SEVEN GROUPS DENOTING THE LEVEL OF THE FATHERS' EDUCATION. THE RESPONSES OF THE GROUP WERE COMPARED BY SIMPLE ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE. ALTHOUGH SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT VARIABLES OVERALL ARE RELATED TO MALE AND FEMALE STUDENTS, THERE ARE SOME GENERAL TRENDS. PARENTS WITH MORE EDUCATION SEEM TO TAKE MORE INTEREST IN THE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES OF THEIR CHILDREN AND ARE LESS PERMISSIVE IN REGARD TO HOMEWORK AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE. COLLEGE-TRAINED PARENTS ARE MUCH MORE DEMANDING AND PERHAPS LESS ACCEPTING OF THEIR CHILDREN. THEY ALSO PROVIDE MORE OPPORTUNITY FOR DISCUSSION, ESPECIALLY IN THE INTELLECTUAL AREAS. THERE ARE INDICATIONS THAT STUDENTS FROM LOWER EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUNDS ARE LESS CONFIDENT ABOUT ADAPTING TO THE UNIVERSITY ENVIRONMENT. FOR GIRLS, WITH AN INCREASE IN THE MOTHER'S EDUCATION, THERE IS AN INCREASE IN POSITIVE FEELINGS ABOUT RESPONSIBILITY AND THEIR OWN EMOTIONAL MATURITY. BOYS SHOW A DECREASE IN POSITIVE FEELINGS AS THE MOTHER'S EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT INCREASES. (AO)
