From Politics to Performance: How Perceived Support Matters for Public Organizations

From Politics to Performance: How Perceived Support Matters for Public Organizations Research on support for educational institutions has ebbed and flowed with much of the focus directed toward internal mechanisms including teachers, administrators, and staff. This study stresses the importance of support from external environments and tests its influence on student achievement. Using panel data from over 1000 public schools, empirical results suggest that support increases test scores and daily attendance. The findings encourage scholars to consider the politics of educational environments and delve deeper into the consequences of external drivers for the performance of public schools. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Public Administration Taylor & Francis
