SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS VIEW PROFESSIONAL NEGOTIATION.
American Association of School Administrators, Washington, DC.
COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATION BY MAJOR PERSONNEL IN THE EDUCATIONAL PROCESS IS DISCUSSED PRIMARILY FROM THE SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT'S VIEWPOINT. SINCE WORLD WAR II, SCHOOL STAFFS HAVE INCREASINGLY DEMANDED A CHANGE IN THE HIERARCHICAL STRUCTURE AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HORIZONTAL CONCEPT OF EDUCATIONAL AUTHORITY. THIS DEMAND IS ATTRIBUTED TO THE INCREASING LEVEL OF PREPARATION AND COMPETENCE OF TEACHERS, THE GROWING SIZE OF SCHOOLS, THE INCREASING TREND TOWARD TEACHING AS A LIFE CAREER, URBANIZATION, AND THE GROWING CONTROL BY TEACHERS OF THEIR OWN PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS. SHARED RESPONSIBILITY--BASED UPON COMMON GOALS AND INTERESTS AMONG TEACHERS, SCHOOL BOARDS, AND ADMINISTRATORS--IS REGARDED AS THE MOST APPROPRIATE CONCEPT FOR COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AMONG PROFESSIONALS IN THE FIELD OF EDUCATION. THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS SHOULD BE AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN THIS PROCESS AS IT RELATES TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF POLICIES WHICH AFFECT THE STAFF AND THE SCHOOL SYSTEMS OPERATION. PARTICULAR ASPECTS OF NEGOTIATION CONSIDERED INCLUDE--(1) ADVANTAGES OF A SINGLE ORGANIZATION AS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE STAFF, (2) COMPOSITION OF THE NEGOTIATING UNIT, (3) TIME AS AN OPEN OR CLOSED ELEMENT OF NEGOTIATION, (4) GRIEVANCE PROCEDURES, KINDS OF SANCTIONS, AND TEACHER STRIKES, (5) STATE LEGISLATIVE DEVELOPMENTS AND GUIDELINES, (6) VALUES OF UNION AFFILIATION, AND (7) THE UNIQUE POSITION OF THE SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT WITH RESPECT BOTH TO THE EDUCATIONAL PROCESS AND TO THE PROCESS OF PROFESSIONAL NEGOTIATION THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS, 1201 SIXTEENTH STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036.
