Abstract

This paper discusses the influence of economic, social and cultural capital of parents on children's educational achievement. We analyze data taken from 122 respondents with Bachelor and Master Degrees in one public university in Indonesia. It is hypothesized that there is an influence of economic and socio-cultural capital to the educational achievement of students. This study contradicts the universal view that student achievement is not closely related to family income or socioeconomic status. The result of our analysis proves that the social and cultural capital influences educational achievement in various academic and non-academic fields at around 18%, and economic and socio-cultural capital give effect to education achievement at 14.4%. The results of this analysis suggest that economic and cultural capital of parents influences students’ education achievement.
