The American Federation of Teachers; A Short Annotated Bibliography.
Literature that is available in high school, small college, and county libraries is collected in this annotated bibliography on the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). The bibliography is divided into five sections, the first being an overview of the teachers' union which focuses on critical moments in the history of the AFT. The second section on organization discusses the question of an AFT-National Education Association (NEA) merger and details the influence of teacher unionism on public education. Collective bargaining and political action for social policies are among the topics in the third section, and the fourth deals with the effects of increasing organizing efforts in private schools and colleges. Case studies of strikes and their consequences complete the bibliography. Citations from 1936 to 1976 are included. (DS)
