Budgets, Bonds, and Ballots. Voting Behavior in School Financial Elections. Lexington Books Politics of Education Series.
Piele, Philip K.; Hall, John Stuart
This book summarizes and analyzes empirical research on voting in school financial elections, based on more than 100 research reports published since 1960. In their discussion, the authors attempt to objectively catalogue significant research findings, as well as to evaluate the findings and relate them to each other. Chapter 1 introduces the problems of declining support for school financial issues, and Chapter 2 prescribes a methodology for researchers and administrators to use in addressing the problem. Chapter 3 describes the participants in school financial elections and assesses several explanations for their participation. Chapter 4 examines some of the causes and effects of turnout fluctuations in school financial elections, particularly the relationship between turnout size and election outcome. Chapters 5, 6, and 7 focus in turn on environmental, socioeconomic, and psychological determinants of voter behavior and election outcome. Chapter 8 links major propositions to suggest credible partial theories and future research needs in the area of school financial elections. (Author/JG)
