In today's changing economy and global competition, the demand for a better educated workforce has been increasing. Since the 1970's, new structures of work have emerged that require a highly skilled labor force. What do Michigan residents think about future educational needs of young people? What level of education do they expect their children will most likely attend? Using data from the State of State Survey (SOSS), the authors examined parents' aspirations and expectations for their youth's educational futures. Specifically, this brief examines whether parents' aspirations and expectations for their youth's educational futures vary by race and ethnicity, education attainment, family income, marital status, and rural/urban residential location. (Contains 7 figures and 1 endnote.)
