Problems, Issues and Techniques in the Resolution of School Disputes. A Report on the Collective Negotiations Institute, 1969.
This report discusses the types, development, and dynamics of school disputes, and indicates when intervention can bring them to satisfactory resolutions. The format is essentially a casebook of various kinds of disputes and dispute-causing issues. Two kinds of school disputes are emphasized: school-community and internal organizational. The final section contains recommendations for dispute settlement, noting that negotiations can prevent disputes from becoming malevolent and/or resolve disputes after they have entered a malevolent cycle. The report also recommends the establishment of centers for the study and resolution of school disputes to assist school districts in resolving both internal disputes and those that result from external forces.
