The Impact of P.L. 94-142 on Collective Bargaining at the Local School District Level.
Alexander, Jacquelyn; And Others
A survey was conducted to determine the effects of Public Law 94-142 (Education for All Handicapped Children Act) on collective bargaining at the local school district level. Educators affiliated with public schools, institutions of higher learning, and teacher organizations in seven states responded to a formal questionnaire. The results indicated that the issues most likely to surface during the collective bargaining process are: teacher involvement in the planning of policies and procedures which affect their classrooms, and class size, that is pupil/teacher ratio. The overwhelming concern for involvement in decision making may indicate that the classroom teacher feels the locus of control is not within the classroom. Both structural and behavior solutions to these two major concerns of teachers are possible. Among the structural strategies available for handling the concerns are manpower adjustments, staff development, and innovative and flexible staffing patterns. The behavioral strategy calls for the establishment of a task force to deal with the issues and concerns. (Author/PHR)
