Labor Relations and Public School Desegregation in Los Angeles, Dade County and Boston.
Katz, Harry C.
This report analyzes and evaluates the interaction between public school desegregation (of both student and faculty populations) and faculty labor relations within the Los Angeles, Boston, and Dade County (Florida) school systems. Specific changes in personnel policies and collective bargaining agreements are examined and compared across three systems. The impact of environmental factors and enrollment trends on the course of desegregation and the conduct of labor relations are also discussed. Following the introduction, section two outlines some of the components of court desegregation orders and discusses the ways in which desegregation affects faculty labor relations. Section three includes case studies which examine the relationship between desegregation and faculty labor relations in the three school systems. Section four evaluates the success of the court's regulatory intervention in the three systems and suggests some of the factors that explain the observed variations of successful intervention. (JCD)
