Sociologists and education researchers offer new insights into the enduring question of how families and schools shape the experiences of students and teachers and influence the educational outcomes of students. They cover how schools matter: the need for a contextual perspective; preschool enrollment, classroom instruction, elementary school context, and the reading achievement of children from low-income families; the consequences of principal and teacher turnover for school social resources; the effect of mothers' educational credentials on children's outcomes: whether being a first-generation or continuing-generation college graduate matters; children's highbrow cultural activities and academic achievements in Hong Kong; and the hopes carry them on: early educational expectations and later educational outcomes in rural Gansu, China.
