The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the parenting style of a teacher predicts the use of teaching strategies and academic achievement of their African American and Latino students as evidenced by California Standards Test scores (CST). This study utilized Baumrind's (1971) three parenting prototypes: Authoritative, Authoritarian, and Permissive. It also made use of Marzano, Pickering, and Pollock's (2001) nine research-based teaching strategies. The study was quantitative and surveyed teachers of second through eighth grade who were also parents. Eighty-four teachers from twenty-five schools in nine districts and three charter schools participated in this study. Results reveal that the teachers' Authoritarian parenting style was positively related to gains in student CST Math scores. Males were negatively related to CST Language Arts scores. English Learners and students who qualified for free/reduced lunch were negatively related to both Language Arts and Math CST scores. Authoritative and Authoritarian parenting style of the teacher both positively predicted two teaching strategies: Similarities and Differences; and Homework and Practice. Authoritative parenting was also positively related to two other teaching strategies: Representing Knowledge; and Setting Objectives and Providing Feedback.This study utilized Baumrinda#39;s (1971) three parenting prototypes: Authoritative, Authoritarian, and Permissive.
