Conference Explores Effects of Collective Bargaining on Schools and Administrators.
De Bevoise, Wynn
R&D Perspectives, Sum 1982
The proceedings of a conference on collective bargaining sponsored by the Center for Educational Policy and Management at the University of Oregon are summarized by this publication. The conference, "The Effects of Collective Bargaining on School Administrative Leadership," explored a multiplicity of approaches to collective bargaining and its effects on the management of public schools. The conference viewed collective bargaining and administrative leadership from the perspective of the researcher, the teacher union representative, the administrator, and the teacher. The 2-day conference was divided into four sessions. Speakers in the first session addressed the historical development of bargaining and the impact of bargaining on educational policy. Presentations made during the second session focused on the effects of bargaining on personnel relationships at the school and district levels. Bargaining's impact on the allocation of teacher time, teacher salaries, and perceptions of teacher work were discussed in the third session. The final session consisted of a review of the role of collective bargaining in education and suggestions for future research. (Author/LL)
