This study investigated the relationship between parents’ socio-economic status and their children’s educational attainment. The main objective of the study was to know about different socio-economic factors (parents’ income level, parents’ education level, parents’, and occupational status) that affect students’ educational attainment in Eti-Osa local government secondary schools. This study was a descriptive study and co-relational in nature. Two hundred (200) students were sampled from the sampled schools.Demographic data of the respondents were analyzed with the use of frequency and percentages. To answer the research hypotheses, ANOVA and t-test were used at a 0.05 level of significance. Finally, the study unveiled significant differences in parents’ income as regards the academic attainment of the students. It was recommended that government should take some serious initiatives in uplifting the socio-economic status of people, especially focusing on the increase of their family income, and providing education to their children to achieve good status in the society.
