Are class representatives twice as satisfied?

So Agnes asked (via Facebook), looking at my previous post,, if class representatives are more satisfied than other parents? This picture shows that they are: the parents with Rep=TRUE, i.e. the representatives, are also more satisfied, especially in schools where parents are generally less satisfied.
So perhaps this explains away the effect in the previous post – parent reps can be considered to know themselves (!) and they tend to be more satisfied?
No. I redid the graphic from the previous post excluding all those who are parent reps and the picture is almost indistinguishable. So there are two separate things going on here.
