Views of Local School Board Chairmen and Presidents of Local Education Associations Toward Collective Negotiations.
This study investigated the nature and extent of differences of opinion between chairmen of local school boards and presidents of local education associations regarding collective negotiations. Data for the study were drawn from questionnaires completed by 72 percent of all local education association presidents and 65 percent of all local school board chairmen in Kentucky. A packaged computer program was used to analyze the data and calculate chi-square and lambda measures. Results of the study showed that education association presidents favored enactment of a collective negotiations statute in Kentucky, while a strong majority of school board chairmen opposed such legislation. Size of school district, type of district, and experience of the respondent with negotiations did not significantly alter the basic pattern of responses. (Author/JG)
