The politics of education in the States by L. Harmon Zeigler( Book )

10 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The allocation of education funds by State legislatures, the attitudes of legislators on educational issues, and the interaction of legislators with education lobbyists in Massachusetts, North Carolina, Utah, and Oregon were studied in an attempt to explain how educational resources are allocated in the 50 States and how legislators approach the financing of education. Theories that explain State allocations to education entirely on the basis of economic variables do not adequately explain the full range of educational outcomes. Educational outcomes that are closely related to finances and expenditures are largely determined by economic variables; however, noneconomic outcomes are more closely related to social and political variables. Current allocations for education are closely associated with prior allocations, but changes in educational expenditures are the joint product of social and political variables as well as of economic variables. Non-college-educated, middle class legislators and legislative leaders tended to be more friendly with education lobbyists, but less supportive of increased taxes for education, than were college-educated, affluent, rank-and-file legislators. Legislators' general attitudes toward education were not very closely related to voting on specific educational bills, however. (Author/JG)

Governing American schools : political interaction in local school districts by L. Harmon Zeigler( Book )

6 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data for this analysis of school district governance were gathered in lengthy interviews with 490 school board members and 82 school superintendents from a sample of 83 school districts. In addition, briefer interviews were conducted with 91 board members and 12 superintendents from districts in the 13 largest metropolitan areas. The study revealed a strong positive correlation between the level of political activity in a school district and the responsiveness of school board members to their constituents. However, both responsive and unresponsive boards were generally dominated by the superintendent of the district. In fact, superintendents tended to be more dominant in those districts with relatively responsive school boards, so the unresponsiveness of most school boards is of little practical consequence. The authors conclude that American school boards should actually begin to govern or else they should be abolished altogether. (Jg)

The political world of the high school teacher by L. Harmon Zeigler( Book )

9 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a political leader and as a communicator of political ideas to students, the high school teacher is investigated in four situations--(1) reacting to job and environment, (2) participating in an interest group, (3) expressing political values in class, and (4) reacting to community sanctions. The study is based upon interviews with 803 oregon high school teachers. The typical oregon high school teacher is found to be more conservative politically than his community and to become more conservative the longer he teaches. Small-town teachers, female teachers, and teachers of business education or general education are the most conservative. The political life of the oregon high school teacher is found to be markedly less than that of other populations with comparable education and income. The few teachers who do take part in political activities are likely to be men supporting school bond issues and seeking increases in their own salaries. The author theorizes that two factors account for the political reticence of oregon teachers--the job itself and the kind of people who are recruited into teaching. (Hw)

The quest for responsive government : an introduction to state and local politics by L. Harmon Zeigler( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After a brief overview of responsiveness in government, this book discusses citizen participation in State and local politics and how well-intentioned reformers actually increased the insulation of State and local governments from their constituents. Sustained activity on behalf of interest groups and lobbying as the dominant mode of communication between organizational elites and legally constituted decision makers in State government are examined. A six-step model is presented that describes the normal pattern of policy making at all levels of government. Contrasting degrees of insularity of decision making in government are discussed. The policy formation process in the area of educational policy is considered, and the six-step model is applied to educational decision making. The authors attempt to challenge the notion that governmental responsiveness to the masses is either attainable or desirable. (Author)
