Yang, Chunhua
Frontiers of Education in China, v2 n4 p568-578 Oct 2007
To achieve the overall goals and purposes of education is closely related to the living environments of students. Different family backgrounds will put children into a situation where they face unfair competition. According to a survey conducted in China's Urumqi and Changchun about parents' awareness of educating their children, this paper will suggest that families with different backgrounds have different expectations for their children's education. Moreover, it suggests that parents' social status is related to their children's education expectations. Therefore, we can find that parents' social status influences their children's education, and their positions in social class are related to education.
