Social Conflict: Teachers' Strikes in Newark, 1964-1971. An Issue Paper on a Topical Subject in Education.
Phillips, William M., Jr.; Conforti, Joseph M.
This report is essentially a documentary outline of the events associated with the Newark teacher strikes followed by an analysis of the implications of those events for the future of education in Newark and elsewhere. The chronology provides a detailed delineation of the sequence of events before, during, and after each strike. The information provided was drawn from interviews, press reports, documents, and direct observation. The analysis that follows examines the strikes and the circumstances surrounding them to identify the specific issues and participants, determine the relationship these events had within larger contexts, and examine the direction in which precipitating events appear headed in the future. Guiding the analysis is the question of why social conflict in Newark became focused on the school system. In the conclusions, race relations and social stratification emerge prominently as the contexts which define events. (Author/JF)
