The Employment of Teachers: Some Analytical Views.
Gerwin, Donald, Ed.
This book provides a multidisciplinary view of a wide range of issues relevant to the employment of teachers. It is a compendium of 25 articles contributed by 30 scholars and professionals in the fields of educational administration, industrial relations, behavioral science, economics, management science, and political science. These authorities describe much of the recent and current research dealing with teacher employment. An attempt is also made to appraise the utility of the work that has already been done and to suggest possible directions for future research. Section 1 of the book deals with teaching as a career and includes discussions of teacher selection and evaluation. Section 2 focuses on teacher compensation, with particular attention to more efficient compensation practices and analysis of the various components of the wage package. Section 3 is on organizational behavior; it includes inquiries into such issues as conflict consensus, job satisfaction, and participation in decisionmaking. Section 4 focuses on collective bargaining, with emphasis on such facets as impasse procedures and the structure of the bargaining relationship. (JG)
