Interviewed 23 African-American parents of elementary school children to examine their perceptions regarding interactions with school personnel. Recurrent themes concerned parental ambiguity in their own childhood school orientation, parental management of interactions with school personnel, helping children cope with readily accessible "street economy," and parental aspirations for children in adulthood and progress toward those aspirations.
