Unequal Academic Achievement in High School: The Mediating Roles of Concerted Cultivation and Close Friends
Carolan, Brian V.
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v37 n7 p1034-1055 2016
Building from the classic Wisconsin model of status attainment, this study examines whether a specific style of parenting, concerted cultivation, and a close friend's school-related attitudes and behaviors mediate the relationship between a family's socioeconomic status and their child's academic achievement in the United States. Using a recursive path model on nationally representative panel data of high school students (N = 10,350), the results confirm a direct association between socioeconomic status and concerted cultivation. In addition, concerted cultivation and close friends are shown to mediate the relationship between a family's socioeconomic status and their child's academic achievement.
