Public Opinion, Voter Behavior and School Support.
Johnson, C. Montgomery
This report describes the elements necessary for successful school elections and outlines steps to predict voter reaction. Written primarily for school officials and local citizens' committees, the report analyzes the variables influencing voter turnout and behavior such as occupation, educational level, income, age, parents of school children, political affiliation, sex, community size, location, residency length, home ownership, and responsibility level. The author suggests that alienated people can be persuaded to vote for the schools if they are given the chance to participate actively in school affairs. (Author/JF)
