In this article, the author explores the relationships and responsibilities of family members to each other in Micronesian cultures and implications for Micronesian parent priorities that may affect their children's schooling. The system of family obligations in Micronesian cultures is described. Furthermore, the role of the family in the priorities and behaviors of Micronesian families around schooling of their children is explored. The author argues that understanding these cultural traditions may help teachers and administrators better assist immigrant Micronesian families and their children to be successful in American schools.
