Abstract:
The family environment can be a strong source of support for adolescents. Adolescence is a bridge period, a time of changeover from one stage to another. Positive relationship with parents is an important factor in molding the adolescent’s personality which in turn may help in achieving their goals. Family environment are not similar for all families, it differs from one family to another and also there exist variations in parents and children themselves. Educational aspiration is an important variable in predicting academic achievement and is considered as an important element in academic motivation. Each family environment is unique and due to the diversity in families, the educational aspirations of adolescents may be influenced by family environment. Hence, the present study aims to study the relation between family environment and educational aspiration of adolescents. The study sample comprised of 120 numbers of adolescents of 16-18 years of age, selected randomly from Government and private higher secondary schools. A self-constructed questionnaire was used to collect information on educational aspiration of respondents and a standardized tool “Family Environment Scale” developed by Bhatia and Chadawas (1993) was used to assess the family environment of the respondents. Karl Pearson’s correlation test was computed to assess the relationship between family environment and educational aspiration of adolescents. The correlation coefficient value of the family environment and educational aspiration of adolescents was found to be 0.246 at 0.01 levels of significance. It reveals that there exists a positive correlation between the two variables i.e. if the family environment increases; the educational aspiration of adolescents also increases and vice versa.
