The project on public management considers how institutions are governed and managed and what difference various governance structures and management strategies make. This project is on going in Texas, Denmark, and the Netherlands. The minority education project examines the politics of Latino and African American education in 1800 school districts throughout the United States. It considers questions of electoral structure, access to political power, representation in management and bureaucratic positions, and the performance of minority students on a wide range of indicators.
