Labor Relations in Education: Policies, Politics, and Practices

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.

Holly's P.O.V <p> In truth, Holly was right outside Fate's house. If she was to be a good protecter then she better do it well. Othereise she might lose her position. Grover Underwood was known for bringing in one of the Big Three's children. Fate was another one. Holly could tell. Her aura was stronger then other demi-gods. She picked up the phone and dailed Fate's number. <p> "Hello?" Fate's voice had come out clearly cutting through the silence of the forest near Fate's home. <p> "Fate?" She answered, seeing a deer run by. Even deers were afraid of the coming events "We're in trouble." <p> "Trouble?" She could hear the worry in Fate's voice. "Is this why my mom's home all of the sudden?" <p> "It's time," She answered and ended the call.
