Amita Gupta

Professor of Education

The City College of New York

Gupta will discuss the findings of a study  to understand Indian parents’ perceptions on parent-child relationships including those with extended family; parents’ attitudes with regard to the education of their young children; and parents’ preferences for the skills and behaviors which in their view were important for their children to learn. The discussion will trace traditional and modern influences that shape current beliefs and practices of Indian parents.

Sponsored by the South Asia Center, Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs, Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, and the Department of Human Development and Family Science.
