Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is unfathomable that, in light of recent efforts to close the student achievement gap, the body of research examining the impact of collective bargaining by teachers on public education is so scant. What are the facts and how do we find them? Hannaway and Rotherham rightly raise the issue and put forth real alternatives." --Andrew L. Stern, President, Service Employees International Union

"School districts and unions are among the most conservative institutions left in our country. Their reluctance to budge from the status quo and their fierce resistance to competition adversely impact student achievement, teacher quality, and fiscal equity. Hannaway and Rotherham confront the 800-pound obstacle to renewing public education and set the stage for a vigorous debate that is long overdue." --Alan Bersin, California Secretary of Education

"Jane Hannaway and Andrew Rotherham have turned a searchlight on an important and neglected subject. Collective Bargaining in Education assembles experts who often have strongly contrasting views but whose knowledge and perspectives are invaluable. This is a must-read for anyone concerned about reforming public education." --William L. Taylor, Chairman, Citizens' Commission on Civil Rights

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Ryan Grant on May 8, 2006
Format: Paperback
This is certainly a wonkish book; when you have chapters with more than 100 citations, you've almost certainly written something scholarly. For anyone interested in in teachers unions and collective bargaining, though, this is a very important book. The chapters by Frederick Hess and Dan Goldhaber especially add important elements to the discussion, and the flow to the book as a whole makes sense. I mark it down slightly because of some dull spots (the chapter by Paul Hill, for example, isn't needed), but it's still recommended.

Since this book was published in 2006, a lot has happend that has not been addressed by specific instance. However, since much the seeds of what has come to fruition were being sowed more than a decade ago, this book does stand the test of time.
