Parental socio-economic conditions exercise a deeper impact upon children’s academic achievements. This study examines the relationship between socio-economic conditions of the parents and academic achievements of students at government schools for boys of District Dir, Timergara Pakistan. Data was collected by a structured questionnaire and was presented through tabulation and percentage analysis. The term academic achievement has been equated only with obtaining of marks in the annual examination. For the purpose of the sampling, 08 government secondary schools for boys of District Dir Timergara were selected. A random sample of 69 students was selected from all the 16 secondary schools for boys who had passed secondary examination from the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Malakand. The findings of the study showed a significant relationship between parental socio-economic conditions and academic achievements of the children in secondary examination. It is therefore concluded that the majority of children whose parents have better socio-economic conditions performed better in secondary examination as compared to those children whose parents had low socio-economic condition.
