Collective Negotiations in the Public Schools.
Johnson, Herbert F.
Ways must be sought to make rising teacher militancy benefit education rather than harm it. In this pursuit, State boards of education should (1) help school officials understand that a fundamental change is taking place in their employer-employee relationship, (2) consider whether they wish to support State laws forbidding collective negotiations or to press for laws permitting them, (3) develop advisory services for individual school districts, and (4) play leading roles in devising ways to meet the rising costs of education. All parties involved must be aware of other conflicting pressures such as parental demands for a larger voice in the education of their children. The period in which laws and authority could be relied upon to determine policy in the public schools is drawing to a close. Wishes of employers and employees must be tempered with reason so that the primary goal of educating children can take precedence over personal desire. (TT)
