Abstract

This study was conducted to explain various socio-economic background factors, specifically parental education level, parent’s income, parental employment status, and family size that influence parental expectations on children’s education. Data comes from IFLS-5. Parents’ academic expectations are measured by the highest level of education a child will achieve. OLS correlation analysis and regression were applied to examine the effect of various factors on parental academic expectations. The results revealed that parental academic expectations were influenced by a certain degree of socioeconomic status and significance. Parental education is the main key to the formation of parents’ academic expectations. High socio-economic backgrounds and averages affect academic expectations more than lower. This findings suggest that parental education is more meaningful than their income in relation to academic expectations. But the level of education supported by high-income influences very high academic expectations. This shows that each of the socio-economic background indicators supports one another and works hand in hand with academic expectations.
