Family Influences on the Career Development of African American Children
Love, Elaine Roundtree
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Purdue University
The purpose of this study was to investigate how families influence the career education and career awareness of African American students in grades K-3. Existing literature indicated that scholars have focused their attention on the career education of college level students and counselors working with students in high schools; however, research did not indicate how families influence African American children's career education and career awareness during their early years. This study used both qualitative and quantitative methods. The results suggested that parents are involved in their children's career development. Future research should discuss strategies for increasing fathers' participation in their children's career development. Additionally, future research should investigate family activities to assist parents to influence positively their children's career education and development.
