Labor Relations in Education explores unions and collective bargaining in the public schools of America. The history of the laws, the politics of the response to collective bargaining and unions, and the practices of bargaining and managing a contract are explored in this volume. Changes that may move labor relations into professional relations, away from the industrial labor union model, and diminish the schism that exists between educators are discussed. A fully developed simulation is included to employ the practices and concepts discussed in this book.
