Demographics and Spending for Public Education: A Test of Interest Group Influence.
Miller, Cynthia
Economics of Education Review, v15 n2 p175-85 Apr 1996
Tests an interest-group model of public spending by using variations in spending levels across states and counties. Results provide support for this model, in that education spending increases as the number of parents in the electorate increases. An analysis of Texas counties shows that areas with relatively large elderly populations spend less on education. (37 references) (MLH)
