This cooperative study was conducted by seven southern states to compare educational and vocational goals of 938 urban youths from various backgrounds, along with corresponding parental goals for these children. The factors investigated were sex, level of living, family size, and rural or nonrural background. The study found that: (1) Boys and girls had different goals, (2) Low level of living was associated with low aspirations, (3) Rural-urban differences existed in expectations, (4) Family size was inversely related to expectations, and (5) There were discrepancies in aspirations between parents and children.
