Minority Support for School Bonds in Charlotte-Mecklenburg: A Cautionary Note
Priest, Thomas B.; Fox, Linette P.
Education and Urban Society, v37 n2 p193-203 2005
This article examines support for school bonds among minority group members in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, which includes the city of Charlotte. A survey was conducted shortly after a bitter court case and shortly before a proposed bond referendum. Support for bonds in the minority community was fairly moderate. Support was not related to self-interest. Rather, support for bonds was most closely associated with confidence in public officials.
