Sociology of Education, v71 n3 p175-98 Jul 1998
Argues that both parents' and children's educational expectations are spurred by between-family social capital and within-family social capital, and that agreement between parents and children on educational expectations facilitates children's achievement. Indicates that high levels of parent-child interaction increase expectations, and higher shared-family expectations enhance achievement. (DSK)
