Note:

This poster discusses research on correlations between parent's education and children's test scores. Parents can have an enormous amount of influence on their children's education. Many factors can change how heavily the influence is and if the effect is positive or negative. Children will typically be dealt with in different ways based on factors out of their control and these will impact their performance and their teachers' performances. For this project, the author would like to explore the correlation between the education of parents and the test scores of their children. The author will do that by analyzing data that has already been amassed by the College Board through their standardized tests and the questionnaires that come along with them.
