Abstract

This study describes the relationship between family structure, socio-economic status, and self-esteem among African American college students. There is evidence that supports the existence of a positive relationship between socio-economic status and parental involvement. The most common measures of socio-economic status, parental education, and family income have shown to be strong predictors of children’s educational success. The study suggests that there is no statistically significant relationship between the family structures and self-esteem among African American students. Furthermore, this study also reveals that there is not a statistical relationship between the family structure and self-esteem of African American college students.
