The Effects of Race, Ethnicity and Class in the 1975 New York City Community School Board Elections.
Levine, Johathan
The authors identified those Community School Districts in New York City that have a minority population of at least 60 percent and also contain a non-Hispanic white residential enclave. By studying the election results for these school districts, the authors tested the hypothesis that non-Hispanic white middle-class voters had a disproportionate influence on the 1975 Community School Board Election. Preliminary analysis of a comparison of census data with election results indicates that non-Hispanic white middle-class voters in the enclaves did have a disproportionate effect on the final results. Proportional representation partially explains this disproportionate influence. (Author)
