Abstract

The paper uses a political fragmentation index to calculate how political power affects educational spending in Virginia. The methodology allows the comparison of the distribution of political power and considers political fragmentation. Using a demand for local public goods model, it is found that the interest-group pressures dominated by the primary beneficiaries increase educational spending while higher income and a larger percentage of African-Americans in the population reduce educational spending
