The Opinions of Administrators and Teachers on the Process of Collective Bargaining and the 1979-80 Negotiated Contract between the Chicago Board of Education and the Chicago Teachers Union.
Stewart, William O.
Administrators and teachers in the Chicago (Illinois) Public Schools disagree significantly on the extent to which administrative prerogatives should be limited, according to statistical analysis of the opinionnaire responses of 162 educators from all of Chicago's 27 public school districts. The respondents were asked to agree or disagree with 25 statements, each presenting in simplified form a position on one of the major issues in the contract negotiations held between the Chicago Teachers Union and the Chicago Board of Education. Administrators and teachers essentially agreed on the 10 issues relating to contract provisions affecting teachers and administrators similarly, and disagreed over 15 statements that appeared to encroach on the control of principals and superintendents over school administration. In addition to a presentation and analysis of the data, this dissertation includes a brief historical review of the labor movement in the United States, a chronicle of the financial crisis affecting the Chicago school system during the winter of 1979-80, and a copy of the survey instrument.
