"This study examined the process of how socioeconomic status, specifically parentsâ€™ education and income, indirectly relates to childrenâ€™s academic achievement through parentsâ€™ beliefs and behaviors. Data from a national, cross-sectional study of children were used for this study. The subjects were 868 8â€“12-year-olds, divided approximately equally across gender (436 females, 433 males). This sample was 49% non-Hispanic European American and 47% African American. Using structural equation modeling techniques, the author found that the socioeconomic factors were related indirectly to childrenâ€™s academic achievement through parentsâ€™ beliefs and behaviors but that the process of these relations was different by racial group. Parentsâ€™ years of schooling also was found to be an important socioeconomic factor to take into consideration in both policy and research when looking at school-age children."
