Abstract

Of family variables contributing to children's school achievement, parent expectation was singled out by researchers to be the most salient and powerful force. Existing literatures have reported that Chinese parents overseas highly expect for their children's education, and actively involve themselves in associated activities. Based on information collected from 322 questionnaire survey and 30 face-to-face interviews with parents, this research attempted to investigate what expectations Chinese parents in Mainland China have for their children's education, and how to understand their educational expectations for their children, then to add in-depth understandings of Chinese parent involvement into the growing literature.
