Win/Win, Efective Schools and Reform: An Agenda for the 1990's Crisci, et al.

Dr. Pat Crisci, et al, while not advocating the continued unionization of the teaching profession, do reccomend an amelioration of the tension between labor and management, even if in some instances it necessitates dealing with union representatives. The authors suggest that, regardless of the nature of proposed reforms, before any can be enacted an atmoshpere of collegiality within the profession must be created. They promulgate a new employer-employee relationship that integrates both the need of school administrators to coordinate policy and of teachers to exercise individual initiative. Ultimately they hope that this will lead to mutual goal setting and a win/win approach to decision-making that both sides can live with.
