Applying the Episodic Theory to School Board Cohorts.
Criswell, Larry W.
Further analysis of data previously discussed in a journal article ("Episodic Instability in School District Elections," by L. Criswell and D. Mitchell, in the July, 1980 issue of "Urban Education") indicates that the success of a school board candidate in defeating an incumbent increases the probability that other school board members originally elected at the same time as that defeated incumbent will be defeated in coming elections, while the likelihood is decreased that members elected at the same time as the successful insurgent will be defeated in coming elections. This conclusion was reached by subjecting election results from 89 school districts in four Southern California counties from 1956 to 1977 to two- and three-way analyses of variance, to regression analysis, and to analysis of covariance.
