RESEARCH
 “While research has shown that parental encouragement and
support is the most important indicator of a child developing
college aspirations, parents who have not attended college of ten
lack critical information that enable them to be preemptive in
helping their children prepare for and become eligible for college
(Hossler, Schmit, & Vesper, 1999; Saenz, Hurtado, Barrera, Wolf,
& Yeung, 2007). These families must rely upon institutional
agents to provide information about college. Kim and Schneider
(2005) found that parents with lower levels of educational
attainment benefited the most from active participation with
school counselors and other school personnel about their
children’s college goals. Kim and Schneider’s findings indicated
that the alignment of parental and student goals increased
students’ odds of attending college the year af ter high school. ”
