The Effects of Collective Bargaining on School Administrative Leadership. Proceedings of a Conference Held at the Center for Educational Policy and Management (Eugene, Oregon, July 9-10, 1982).
Duckworth, Kenneth, Ed.; De Bevoise, Wynn, Ed.
This document records the proceedings of a conference on the effects of collective bargaining on school administrative leadership. The conference brought together participants from two areas of research that usually operate independently--research on collective bargaining and research on school administrative leadership. The conference was divided into three sessions. The first, dealing with the effects of collective bargaining on educational policy, focused on the formal statements on matters of policy being written into teacher contracts. Presentations were made and discussed concerning the increasing inclusion of policy provisions in contracts and the reluctance of administrators to take assertive stances regarding policy interests. The second session, on the effects of collective bargaining on personnel relations, concentrated on the informal relationships between administrators and teachers through which policy is actually implemented. Special attention was paid to the work relationships of elementary school principals. The final session looked at the effects of collective bargaining on teaching conditions and included presentations on and discussions of three research projects. These projects studied the time allocation patterns of teachers with and without collective bargaining, the sensitivity of teachers to salary benefits, and changes in teachers' work attitudes caused by collective bargaining.
