Shared Curriculum Decision Making and Professional Negotiations. A Position Paper.
Jackson, Shirley A.
Although professional negotiations have in the past dealt mainly with welfare items such as salary and health benefits, this report contends that it is quite likely that the next major area of negotiations will be that of curriculum. In light of this probable increase in demand to participate in the curriculum decisionmaking process, the author reviews possible alternative methods for involving teachers, the community, and others in the curriculum decisionmaking process and suggests a preferred method. This method involves the formation of a curriculum council that would have representatives from all interested segments of the educational community including teachers, boards of education, parents and citizen groups, industry representatives, and others. The report details how this council would function. (JF)
