Parents feel racial socialization may help minority children succeed in school

28 mayo 2015

A connection between certain approaches to racial socialization in early childhood and parents’ expectations for greater success in school has been uncovered by a new study. The researchers organized 16 focus groups involving 114 parents of children four years of age and younger from several ethnicity-language groups. Parents participating in the study felt that racial socialization in early childhood promotes school readiness, but were unsure of the best timing and particular approach for success.
