Parents' Transmission of Educational Goals to Their Adolescent Children.
Pirtle, Trace; Trusty, Jerry
Journal of Research and Development in Education, v32 n1 p53-65 Fall 1998
Examined the relationship between parents' educational expectations for their adolescents and adolescents' expectations, using data from the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988, specifically the 1992-1994 panel samples. Participants were high school seniors in 1992. Results indicated that fathers and mothers equally influenced adolescents' educational expectations. Educational goal transmission was not stronger for same-gender adolescent-parent pairs. (SM)
