Perry, Charles R.; And Others
This study documents the legal, political, economic, and managerial constraints in the Philadelphia Public School System and traces their impact on the policies and practices of the system. Specifically, the study focuses on collective bargaining relationships and on their impact on the system. The first section outlines the basic constraints that have historically shaped decisions about the compensation and utilization of human resources. This is followed by a discussion of the procedural implications and substantive by-products of collective bargaining in the system. The next three chapters examine the substance of current contracts and the agreements that preceded them. The concluding chapter attempts to place collective bargaining in proper perspective within the larger legal, political, economic, and managerial context and to appraise the prospective significance of collective bargaining for the ability of the schools to meet thier basic mission.
