Children, Parental Employment and Educational Attainment: An English Case Study
AbstractUsing survey and time-use diary data from a local English case study, this paper examines the interplay of family life and educational attainment from a child's perspective. In this working-class community, positive educational outcomes for children were associated with material well-being, educational aspirations, maternal praise and parental employment patterns. Children performed best when mothers were in employment, but the gains were less strong when both parents worked in full-time jobs. The study contributes to unravelling the processes of social capital accumulation at a household level and shows the active role played by both children and parents in the intergenerational transmission of educational advantage and disadvantage.
