A Study of Candidates' Success or Failure in the 1975 New York City Community School Board Elections Using the Tri System Model.
Levine, Jonathan; And Others
The purpose of this study was to identify the critical factors in board candidates' success or failure in the 1975 New York City community school board elections. Data from questionnaires answered by 208 candidates were analyzed according to the Tri System Model, an analytic framework that identifies the significant subsystems of a power system and predicts their ability to influence the decisions of the power system. The data indicate that a candidate's membership in religious organizations, as well as his name having appeared on the ballot in a previous New York City school board election, are strongly correlated with winning.
