Appointing or Electing the Boston School Committee: The Preferences of the African American Community.
Taylor, Steven
Urban Education, v36 n1 p4-26 Jan 2001
Used data provided by Boston's election department to examine the high level of racial polarization around the issue of an elected versus appointed school board. Although the appointed board voted more favorably on issues concerning African Americans, blacks were disturbed by the loss of four elected positions and opposed to the appointed board's firing of the black superintendent.
