The Allocation of Lottery Revenue to Education in Florida, California, Michigan, and Illinois.
Allen, Pamela J.
Educational Policy, v5 n3 p296-311 Sep 1991
Explores the public's misconception about lotteries' intended purpose and actual use. To avoid attacks on its legitimacy (and bloated bureaucratic structure), government is relying on lotteries as policy tools. Generating public funds through lotteries appears to meet education's needs while masking the relative drop in tax-based public finance. (21 references) (MLH)
