parents and students

Most Americans (64%) say that parents are not putting enough pressure on their children to do well in school as U.S. students are underperforming on international tests.  By contrast, 68% of the Chinese public take the opposite position and say that parents in their country are putting too much pressure on their children to succeed academically.

 

A survey by the Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Project finds that, overall, majorities or pluralities in nearly half of the countries polled believe that parents are not putting enough pressure on their children to succeed in school.
