Abstract

Education is one of the decisive factors for individual growth and future economic status. As the key factor of children's success, parents' expectation of education differs from family's educational background. Based on the data of China Family Tracking Survey (CFPS) in 2018, OLS regression analysis, robustness test and heterogeneity analysis were carried out with the help of stata17 software to study the influence of families with low educational background on children's educational expectations. The results show that: (1) In families with low educational background, educational expectation is negatively correlated with educational background;(2) Low educational background has a significant impact on family educational expectations in rural areas, but not in urban areas;(3) The influence of low education families on educational expectations is mainly reflected in "saving education funds" and "children's academic relationship";(4) By allowing low-education families to accept new educational concepts, it can improve the planning of their children's educational expectations.
