Teacher Unionization: A Reassessment of Rank and File Motivations
Jessup, Dorothy K.
Sociology of Education, 51, 1, 44-55, Jan 78
Investigates factors underlying teacher support for the union movement in six New York school districts in the 1960s. Feelings of powerlessness in educational decision making were an important motivating force. Support for unions was based in part on the expectation that collective bargaining would help strengthen teacher participation in educational decisions. (Author)
