Family’s Impact on the Formation of the Strategy of Attaining Higher Education by youth
Languages of publication
The article is based on the results of the sample inquiry of secondary school graduates of the city of Novosibirsk and the Novosibirsk Territory. One can readily see that there is a certain dependence between the youth’s educational strategy and their family type, the latter is determined on the basis of their parents’ education, to be more accurate, by the kind of their education. This idea proves to develop earlier investigations on the role of the family in forming attitudes of the youth that allow them to develop their adaptation potential and which was tackled by the authors in their monograph “Sociocultural Adaptation of the Youth of the North” (Abramova, Goncharova, Kostyuk Novosibirsk, 2011). The investigation makes it possible to speak about the dependence between a high level of the parents’ education and the formation of corresponding orientations of their children for their own further education. As to parents with lower education their children are apt to have lower simpler ambitions for their future. The analysis of value orientations, as regards the choice of educational strategy, shows that all school graduates consider further education first of all as a possibility of further professional development. It has also been shown that differences in perception of the value of attaining post-secondary education are conditioned by youth’s different life attitudes which are formed, including by parents who have different levels of education.
