"School Choice: Money, Race and Congressional Voting on Vouchers"
: This paper discovers that a campaign contribution to a
member of the U.S. House of Representatives by the American
Federation of Teachers or the National Education
Association (the two major teachers’ unions) in the 2000
election cycle reduces the probability that a
Representative will vote for a school choice amendment to
the “No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.” It also discovers
that a Representative whose district has a large African
American population or who is Republican is more likely to
vote for vouchers.
