Wave II of Political Socialization Study Nearing Completion
Wave II of the multi-wave study of political socialization of adolescents in the Columbus Public School (CPS) system is nearing completion. Wave I, conducted in fall 2005 and winter 2006, included interviews of teachers, parents, and students. Wave II, conducted in fall 2006, includes interviews with hundreds of current and former CPS students to assess the long-term impact of civics curricula, political conversation, and mass media on democratic outcomes. Pending additional funding, the study will finish in 2008 with a final post-election follow-up interview. To read more about Wave II, click here.
