Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1994 
44 p. 

American parents who are trying to rear their children in responsible ways do so in the face of peer influences that may be at odds with the parents' values. This report examines some of the findings of the 1993 National Household Education Survey (NHES) to show how families and students' peers sometimes work at cross-purposes. Specifically addressed here are views on health-related behaviors, educational attainment and achievement, and conduct in school. Since many educators believe that children are more likely to succeed in school when children's parents are involved in school activities, degrees of parent involvement are examined first. Parent involvement was measured in accordance with a child's grade level and age, family characteristics, comparative involvement in public and private schools, and the relationship to student achievement and behavior. Examined next are reports of teachers, parents, and students on the school environment. Addressed here are conditions that interfere with teaching and learning, unlawful behavior at school, harm or harassment at school, strategies to avoid harm at school, school discipline policies, and alcohol and drug education. Sixteen figures offer graphs depicting parents' and students' opinions on various topics and related data. Contains a list of four related reports released by the National Center for Education Statistics. (RJM)
