Yoko Yamamoto has examined families and schooling. She explores how culture and socioeconomic status shape parental beliefs and academic socialization as well as children's beliefs about and attitudes toward learning. She has also striven to understand mechanisms through which educational advantages or disadvantages are created, maintained, and negotiated, especially in relation to gender, socio-economic status, and immigrant status. She is currently involved in several research projects that investigate parenting, socialization processes, and family-school partnerships in Japan and the United States.
