Collective Bargaining in Illinois Schools, 1974-75. Volume 1--Current Status. 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 presents data describing the current status of collective bargaining in Illinois; this segment of the survey made up the largest part of the questionnaire and produced the largest and most complex set of data. The survey findings presented in this volume are organized into five chapters that focus in turn on responding districts and their teacher organizations, economic benefits for teachers, language in bargaining contracts or policies, procedures for collective bargaining, and training of management negotiators. Within each chapter, tables present data separately for districts in the Chicago area, districts outside the Chicago area, districts in Northern Illinois, districts in Southern Illinois, and for the state as a whole. A copy of the survey questionnaire is included in the introduction. (Author/JG)
