Teacher Unions: A Career Educator's Perspective.
Cochren, John R.
Contemporary Education, v69 n4 p214-17 Sum 1998
Describes the original four intents of teacher unionism, examining issues that have created controversy (e.g., inordinate amount of time devoted to issues not strictly related to wages, hours, and wage-related fringe benefits) and problems inherent in the bargaining process (e.g., abdication of administrative decision making). The paper discusses how new unionism is working to correct union problems. (SM)
