Roliata i pravata na profsausite na outchitelite v opredelianeto na outchilichnata politika (The Role and Rights of Teachers' Unions in Educational Policy Making).
Naronda Prosveta Journal, v6 p3-21 1969
This document is an English-language abstract (Approximately 1,500 words) summarizing a report presented at an international meeting of representatives of teachers' unions held in Sofia, Bulgaria. The scientific and technical advances of recent years as well as economic and social development in certain countries places upon teachers the obligation to fight not only for their economic betterment and working conditions, but also for active participation in educational policymaking and educational organization and administration. In striving for this type of participation, teachers and their unions may draw on the principles laid down in the "Recommendation Concerning the Status of Teachers," as adopted by the special intergovernmental conference organized by UNESCO in Paris, October 1966. Surveys conducted in a number of countries reveal that there is a great deal of difference in the degree of teacher participation in policymaking. Communist countries, the free world, and the underdeveloped countries are compared for their treatment of teachers' unions. In all cases, State bodies are said to have the upper hand over teachers' unions, although in Communist countries it is felt that there is more integration between the policymakers and the unions.
