Cooperative Negotiations in Education. A Report of Proceedings, Conference on Teacher-School Board Relations in Suffolk County (May 14, 1969).
Johnson, Herbert F.; And Others
This document includes three addresses presented at a 1-day conference on collective negotiations in education. In his "Keynote Remarks," Dr. Herbert F. Johnson outlines three broad concerns affecting the collective negotiation process in New York: (1) Limited State, local, and Federal financial resources for education; (2) revolutionary actions of teachers, parents, and students, all desiring increased participation in structuring the educational system; and (3) the large number of school districts in the State and consequent diffusion of bargaining situations. In "Collective Negotiations: Challenges and Choices," James J. Richards stresses the need for adopting a cooperative approach to educational negotiations. Following an outline of factors contributing to both conflict and cooperation in negotiations, several structural and functional recommendations for achieving a problem-solving approach to negotiations are offered for use at the district level. Dr. John J. Keough summarizes the ideas presented by conference speakers and the reactions of conference participants during subsequent small group discussions.
