Gray Matter

Interesting Ron Brownstein article from NJ about generational and racial demographics and fiscal burdens and the attendant politics. Big implications for education finance.  Some early and preliminary evidence that older citizens are less likely to support school finance issues on the ballot in mixed race districts, for instance.  Past “Geezer War” items here.

  1. Of course, as more and more local newspapers go out of business, citizens will have little or not information on school ballot issues and will even be less likely to know an issue is up for public vote. That’s been the situation in my community since the local newspaper couldn’t afford to continue publishing about one week after the most recent race started to fill two open slots on our school board.
