Left-behind children are a special group in Chinese society. While their healthy growth has been widely attended, it is worth noting that the academic problems of left-behind children is less noted. In order to analyze the factors affecting the academic achievement of left-behind children, this paper applies for a selective literature review and discusses the impact of 1) parental migration types, 2) family education and 3) family income on the academic achievement of left-behind children. It helps to have a more comprehensive understanding of academic achievement of left behind children. After excluding other factors, we obtained important information that parental migration had little effect on the academic performance of the left-behind children. However, for left behind children, the lack of family education is the most essential difference between them and other children in the process of development. As the results of parents’ absence, left behind children not only lack emotional care, but also lacks guidance from parents while they enter society from school. The emotional lack will affect their psychological status. Personality formation and psychological problems will affect their academic performance. In summary, this research shows that the lower income a family earns in rural areas, the higher risk their children will be left behind. Consequently, it affects the LBC’s academic performance. According to the results, we conclude that the type of parental migration has little impact on the academic achievement of left-behind children, but family education and family income are closely related to the academic achievement of left-behind children.
