Resolving Controversy in Education.
Coulson, Robert
Growing problems in education demand practical systems for the peaceful resolution of grievances without hindering the educational process. The American Arbitration Association (AAA), a private nonprofit organization, can provide effective methods for the solution of many different types of disputes. It can administer representation elections for national and local organizations and provide arbitrators to help determine election ground rules. Members of AAA's National Panel of Arbitrators are also available to serve as fact finders or arbitrators in collective bargaining disputes. AAA experts often conduct training programs in arbitration and negotiating advocacy to instruct potential negotiators in the techniques necessary for effective bargaining. Training programs for student ombudsmen have also been developed. AAA officers and staff members are available to appear at conferences conducted by other groups throughout the country, and a variety of films and pamphlets are available for distribution. The AAA serves as a general educational and informational service on all aspects of the dispute-settling problem in education. (Author/JG)
