It's conference season! It's research season!

We don’t just do surveys. We pride ourselves on being an education research firm.


To that end, we recently presented at the National Rural Education Association conference in Titletown last week (for those of you not in the know, that’s Green Bay – go Pack!).


Not for nothing, conference and research season sound a lot more fun at the moment than whatever’s happening with the Packers’ season.


Oof.


But I digress.


As you can imagine, after 20+ years in business, we have a lot of data. Like, a lot. Because of this, we’re able to see what factors affect whether a referendum passes or fails in a community. For instance…

  • How does the outcome change – if it all – as the proportion of Republican or Democratic voters in a community increases?

  • What happens if the school wins a football championship?

  • Does a higher turnout increase or decrease the odds a referendum is approved by voters?

Fortunately, if you missed our presentation, you’re in luck!


We’ll be reviewing some of this data next week at the Wisconsin Association of School Business Officials Midwest Facility Masters conference in Wisconsin Dells!

Not only will we review the answers to the questions above, we’ll also talk about one of the most important factors that determine whether a referendum passes or fails.


Interested in learning what that is?


Good. See you at 10:00am at the Kalahari next week!
