How Collective Bargaining Affects Decision Making in Illinois Schools, 1974-75. A Research Report.
Booth, Ronald R.; Carlson, Milton
This publication presents data gathered in a survey of the impact of collective bargaining on Illinois school districts. In September 1974, the Illinois Association of School Boards mailed a three-part questionnaire to the superintendent of each of its 932 member school districts. Completed questionnaires were returned by 739 districts, representing 71 percent of Illinois' 1,045 districts. The questionnaire produced three kinds of information, which are reported in three separate publications. This report deals with the impact of collective bargaining on school management decision-making, as indicated by responses to 46 key items that are common teacher union proposals in collective bargaining. The survey findings presented in this volume are organized in six chapters. Chapter 1 summarizes chapters 2-6 relative to key questions concerning teacher involvement in decision-making; the other five chapters focus in turn on decisions related to direct teacher benefits, decisions related to implied teacher benefits, decisions related directly to teacher security issues, decisions related to implied teacher security issues, and other decisions found in teacher proposals. Within each chapter, tables present data separately for districts in the Chicago area, districts outside the Chicago area, and for the state as a whole. (Author/JG)
