The Impact of College Education on Political Attitudes and Behaviors: A Reappraisal and Test of the Self-Selection Hypothesis.
Vedlitz, Arnold
Social Science Quarterly, v64 n1 p145-53 Mar 1983
The assumptions underlying the mass survey and student-based analyses supporting the widespread generalization that higher levels of education have positive impact on political behaviors and attitudes are challenged. Factors predating college attendance may be important in explaining political differences among populations of college-educated and noncollege-educated individuals. (Author/RM)
