Issues and Outcomes of Teachers' Strikes, 1955-65.
Goergen, Joseph H.; Keough, John J.
This study analyzes the patterns of 40 teacher strikes between 1955 and 1965 by looking at (1) the issues and demands and (2) the outcomes and settlements. It is hypothesized that (1) teacher strikes fall into discernible patterns, (2) functional relationships exist between certain strike issues and outcomes and the strike itself, (3) strikes can be analyzed by an index system weighted by frequency of issues or outcomes, (4) issues and outcomes usually represent teacher self-interest, (5) strikes recurred in the school districts studied, and (6) a geographical pattern to teacher strikes existed during the period studied. Conclusions support all but one of the hypotheses. Regarding the analysis of strikes by an index system, it was found that teacher strikes do not lend themselves to simple numerical analysis, making it impossible to establish a predictive index. (TT)
