"School Choice: Money, Race and Congressional Voting on Vouchers"

Journal Article (Academic article)

: 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.
