Factors Affecting the Outcome of Successful and Unsuccessful Bond Referenda in Four School Districts.
Lifto, Don Edward
This comparative study involving four St. Paul-Minneapolis, Minnesota, metropolitan public school districts investigates strategies, non-strategic factors, and critical incidents thought to affect the outcome of school bond referenda. Results address what election strategies are most commonly used to affect the outcome of school bond referenda and why, which election strategies have the greatest affect on referenda outcome and why, and which election strategies most differentiate between successful and unsuccessful school bond referenda and why. The study further shows how election strategies compare with other non-strategic factors in deciding school bond referenda, what affect critical incidents had on election outcomes, and what role superintendent leadership played in the selection of election strategies and the management of non-strategic factors and critical incidents. Appendices contain various research documents, including study questionnaires. (Contains 91 references.) (GR)
