COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS--IMPLICATIONS FOR RESEARCH.
OHM, ROBERT E.
THE AUTHOR STATES THAT CONFLICT, CONTROL, AND BARGAINING ARE PRIMARY ELEMENTS FOR RELEVANT THEORY AND RESEARCH ON COLLECTIVE TEACHER NEGOTIATION. COLLECTIVE ACTIVITY BY TEACHERS IS ATTRIBUTED TO THEIR INCREASED PROFESSIONALIZATION AND IS REGARDED AS AN ORGANIZATIONAL RESPONSE GENERATED BY AN EMERGING MANAGERIAL-PROFESSIONAL-BUREAUCRATIC DISCONTINUITY IN SCHOOL ORGANIZATION. BARGAINING IS A GENERALIZED SOCIAL CONTROL TECHNIQUE FOR DEALING WITH COMPLEX AUTHORITY AND CONTROL SYSTEMS. SUGGESTED AREAS OF RESEARCH INCLUDE--(1) THE PROFESSIONALIZATION OF THE ROLE OF THE TEACHER AND ITS EFFECT UPON COMPLEMENTARY ROLES, (2) THE FORMS OF CONFLICT GENERATED BY PROFESSIONAL-EMPLOYEE ORIENTATIONS, (3) FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO THE FORMATION OF AN ORGANIZED TEACHER GROUP, (4) OPERATIONAL CLARIFICATION OF AUTHORITY, POWER, AND CONTROL, (5) THE SCHOOL AS A CLOSED SYSTEM, AND (6) EFFECTS OF EMERGING FORMS OF COLLECTIVE TEACHER ACTION ON THE TOTAL POWER OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. CYBERNETIC AND COMMUNICATION THEORY ARE SUGGESTED AS TOOLS FOR RESEARCH ON CONTROL STRUCTURES AND PROCESSES CONSISTENT WITH A MULTIPLE POWER BASE. GAME THEORY IS SUGGESTED AS A VALID APPROACH TO THE STUDY OF CONTROL TRANSFORMATION FOR ARTICULATING THE ORGANIZATIONAL COMPLEXITY OF SCHOOL SYSTEMS AND FOR FORMULATING NEW ORGANIZATIONAL DESIGNS AND PROCESSES.
