Used data from the National Household Education Survey to examine parents' conceptions of kindergarten readiness and home learning, noting relationships with race and ethnicity. Racial/ethnic differences existed in parents' attitudes about readiness. Parents considered several academic and behavioral skills important for kindergarten success. Parents' concerns about kindergarten readiness were unrelated to learning activities and educational television viewing at home. (SM)
