Students’ educational and career aspirations are highly influential on their school perseverance. Students who have well-defined educational and career goals find the motivation they need to stick with their studies. Setting such goals is highly influenced by students’ self-perception of their educational abilities. Parents also play a crucial role in the development of their children’s educational and career aspirations.
