Queens College, City University of New York

Bennett and Amy Lutz will write a book that examines the different ways parents approach their children’s education. They will explore the sources of variation in parenting styles across class, race/ethnicity, and immigrant generations. They will draw on survey data, in-depth qualitative interviews, and academic data to analyze dynamics within families, schools, neighborhoods and to better understand the roots of social behavior.
