Nelson, Frankie Beth; And Others
This booklet is a compilation of selected papers prepared for the conference which dealt with the relationship between collective action through the legal process of negotiation and the need for teachers for self-determination and involvement in a variety of professional decisions and processes of a nonwelfare nature. "The Uncertain Society" by Frankie Beth Nelson sets the broad social context. "Professional Negotiation in Context" by D. D. Darland holds that the context should be one of a "viable design for the governing of the teaching profession.""The Scope of Collective Negotiation in Selected Urban and Suburban School Systems: Implications for Public Policy" by Jonathan P. West is a summary of a study of 44 medium-size school districts and 16 big-city school systems."Canadian Experience with Negotiation" by S. C. T. Clarke tells of 25 years of collective negotiation by Canadian teachers. "Negotiation of Instruction in Michigan" by Karl H. Ohlendorf summarizes experience of the Michigan Education Association. "Collective Negotiation in Curriculum and Instruction" by Robert J. Alfonso contends that curriculum negotiation is a self-defeating process. "Negotiation in Curriculum and Instruction: Another Step Up the Professional Ladder" by Girard D. Hottleman lists 30 areas of concern under three legitimate areas of negotiation. The report concludes with the closing remarks by Roy A. Edelfelt. An appendix lists 40 inhibitors of professionalization as reported by teachers. (JS)
