The Development of Occupational Aspirations and Expectations among Inner-City Boys.
Cook, Thomas D.; And Others
Child Development, v67 n6 p3368-85 Dec 1996
Interviewed boys in grades two through eight about their occupational aspirations. Found that aspirations of inner-city boys mirrored race and class differences in adult job holdings; the gap between aspirations and expectations was greater for inner-city boys than other boys; and lower occupational aspirations of inner-city boys were related to their lower educational aspirations.
