Special Education in the Collective Bargaining Process: An Analysis of 71 Tri-County, Michigan Master Agreements.
Sosnowsky, William P.; Coleman, Thomas W., Jr.
Reported were analyses of 71 tri-county Michigan contracts with teachers formulated as a result of collective bargaining, and of the impact of the collective bargaining process on special education. Findings concerned identification, referral of students for special services, preparation for substitute teacher, implementation of programs and services for the handicapped, placement and discharge procedures, integration of special class students within regular school program, special education personnel development, involvement of special education personnel in curriculum development, special education salary differentials, special education class size, facilities for special education programs, schedule provisions, summer school special education programs, supervisory and ancillary personnel, discipline and control, punishment, suspension from school and from class, and assault upon teachers by students. Findings indicated that little attention was given to matters concerning special education by negotiators of local school districts, that the handicapping condition most often referred to was emotionally disturbed, and that the most beneficial provisions came from distressed school systems.
