Description

Children discuss their career aspirations from an early age. Studies suggest that there is a relationship between income level and career aspirations. However, there is a gap in the literature that examines relationships between socioeconomic status, ethnicity, grade level, and career aspirations. This study aims to investigate these relationships by surveying students in grades 3, 6, 9, and 11, from diverse neighborhoods. Focusing on students from predominantly Black and White and low and high socioeconomic schools will allow us to discover if there are multilevel relationships among those variables.
