IMPLICATIONS OF COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATION FOR THE ROLE OF SUPERINTENDENT.
ALLEN, ROY B.
THE AUTHOR STATES THAT THREE DEFINITIONS OF THE SUPERINTENDENT'S ROLE ARE DISTINGUISHED BY THE FORM OF THE PARTICULAR NEGOTIATION PROCESS--(1) SUPERINTENDENT UNINVOLVED, WITH NEGOTIATION CARRIED ON DIRECTLY BY TEACHER-ORGANIZATION REPRESENTATIVES AND THE BOARD OF EDUCATION, (2) SUPERINTENDENT ACTING AS BOARD OF EDUCATION REPRESENTATIVE IN NEGOTIATION WITH TEACHERS' ORGANIZATION REPRESENTATIVES, AND (3) SUPERINTENDENT SERVING IN ONE OF SEVERAL CAPACITIES, PRIMARILY AS CONSULTANT, WITH BOTH BOARD OF EDUCATION AND TEACHERS' ORGANIZATION REPRESENTATIVES. THE SUPERINTENDENT'S ROLE IN COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATION WILL CONTINUE TO LACK DEFINITION UNTIL THE ROLE OF THE TEACHERS' ORGANIZATION IS MORE CLEARLY DEFINED. IN HIS ROLE AS ADMINISTRATOR, THE SUPERINTENDENT HAS RECEIVED SPECIFIC TRAINING AND IS PROFESSIONALLY QUALIFIED, WHEREAS REPRESENTATIVES OF TEACHERS' ORGANIZATIONS LACK TRAINING BOTH IN NEGOTIATION AND ADMINISTRATION AND ASSUME ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTIONS THROUGH A NEGOTIATION PROCESS THAT IS MORE REVOLUTIONARY THAN EVOLUTIONARY. THE VIEW THAT THE SUPERINTENDENT REPRESENTS MANAGEMENT AND THE TEACHERS' ORGANIZATION REPRESENTS LABOR JEOPARDIZES THE SUPERINTENDENT'S ROLE AS THE EDUCATIONAL LEADER OF THE PROFESSIONAL STAFF. THE COMPLETE DOCUMENT "COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS AND EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION," OF WHICH THIS IS CHAPTER 8, IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY COUNCIL FOR EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION, 65 SOUTH OVAL DRIVE, COLUMBUS, OHIO 43210, AND FROM DR. ROY B. ALLEN, COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS, FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS 72701, FOR $2.50. (JK)
