Effects of Teacher Organizational Membership on School Expenditures and Policies in Illinois.
Giuntoli, Rex D.
The purpose of this study was to determine if there was a relationship between the organization representing the teachers at the bargaining table and a) the salary paid to teachers, b) the ratio of items of school districts' internal budgets, and c) the policies associated with teacher working conditions in school districts in the State of Illinois. A questionnaire, mailed to the school districts with 750 or more students, requested information pertaining to the negotiation process and fringe benefits in monetary amounts and for a copy of the 1968-69 contractual agreement between the teacher organization and the board of education. Information from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction showed internal budgetary amounts, assessed valuation data and teacher salary. The chi square statistical procedure was used to analyze categorical variable such as educational practices. Multiple linear regression was used to analyze continuous variables such as wealth of the school district as measured by the assessed valuation of the school district, size of the school district, and mean years of teaching experience of the teachers. The residuals of the multiple regression were then used to conduct a one-way analysis of variance. The study indicated that a) future administrators had better be prepared for some "hard" negotiating when they accept positions as superintendents, b) professional negotiations involve non-monetary as well as monetary concerns, and c) the decline in the teacher job market and in financial support in education will place a greater emphasis on job security.
