The following questions guided this study: 1. Are students with parents that attended college more inclined to go to college after high school? 2. Did students that attended a low socio-economic school have lower career aspirations? 3. Did activities at the schools encourage the pursuit of careers requiring college education? 4. Did the level of education of the parent correspond with the student's career aspirations?
