Partisanship, Political Polarization, and State Higher Education Budget Outcomes
Dar, Luciana; Lee, Dong-Wook
Journal of Higher Education, v85 n4 p469-498 Jul-Aug 2014
In this article, we explore how partisanship affects state higher education policy priorities and expenditures. We assume that party coalitions are heterogeneous and policy preferences/priorities differ via mediating factors. We find that Democratic Party strength positively affects state funding for higher education but that the effect diminishes as political polarization or unemployment increases.
