Cost-Shifting and Health Care Benefits: A Study of Selected Ohio School Districts Crisci, Pat E. and Penning, James

Compares the differing financial burdens of school districts that foot the entire bill for their teachers' health benefits with those that require their educators to share a portion of those costs. Based on the results of this eye opening study, the authors recommend that, "as school disctricts approach the bargaining table under a collective bargaining statute, they consider seeking a degree of cost-shifting in their negotiated agreements."
