The aim of this paper is to identify main factors explaining high parental educational expectations from their children. Unlike most studies, parental expectations are examined as an independent variable, rather than as a dependent variable. Data from the first wave of the Czech Household Panel Survey (2015) are analysed. Multilevel logistic regression confirms that parents' education and students' type of school attended are the strongest determinants of high parental educational expectations. The effects of socio-economic occupational status, cultural capital and marital status are also significant. The modelling results demonstrate gender differences in expectations – parents expect more from daughters than sons. However, number of children does not seem to have an impact on parental educational expectations.
