Mothers' and Fathers' Aspirations for Sons and Daughters.
Voydanoff, Patricia; Rodman, Hyman
A series of questions on educational aspirations for their children was asked of 436 black parents in Detroit. Responses were used to develop measures of a range of aspirations. Sex of parent and sex of child were not significantly related to the width of the range of aspirations. Significant associations between social class status and the width of the range of aspirations were shown for the entire sample as well as for each of the sex of parent by sex of child subgroups. These results support earlier findings which show little variation in black parents' aspirations for children by sex of parent or sex of child. Other considerations, however, emphasize the need for collecting data by sex of parent and sex of child. (Author)
