Educational Aspirations of Puerto Rican Mothers for Their Children.
Montalvo, Maria A.; Ogletree, Earl J.
The purpose of the study reported in this document was to determine the expectancy levels of Puerto Rican mothers for their children's educational careers. A sample of 125 mothers whose children attended a Chicago elementary school, located in a lower socioeconomic Spanish-speaking community, provided the data reported. Specific factors examined in relation to the mothers' educational aspirations for their children include: (1) the educational and occupational levels of the mothers; (2) the mothers' geographical origin; (3) family size; (4) language dominance at home; and (5) family income. Findings are presented in textual and statistical form. (Author/EB)
