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

From the Back Cover

When it comes to public discussion of school reform, teachers unions are the proverbial elephant in the room.

Collective bargaining shapes the way public schools are organized, financed, staffed, and operated. Despite the tremendous influence of teachers unions, however, there has not been a significant research-based book examining the role of collective bargaining in education in decades. Collective Bargaining in Education offers a thorough and nuanced analysis of the available research and varied perspectives on its implications. This timely and comprehensive volume will spur and strengthen public debate over the role of teachers unions in education reform for years to come.

“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

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

“We have waited decades for such a comprehensive overview of collective bargaining and teachers unions. A fascinating mixture of solid empirical studies and balanced, informed debate.” — Mike Kirst, Professor of Education and Business Administration, Stanford University

“This volume moves teacher collective bargaining from the sidelines to the center of the policy debate over public education. Its contributors fill the spectrum from those who want to weaken or eliminate union power to those who want to strengthen and reform it. As the editors note, the book started with a conversation; it will stimulate many more.” — Charles Taylor Kerchner, Hollis P. Allen Professor of Education, Claremont Graduate University

Jane Hannway is the director of the Education Policy Center at the Urban Institute in Washington, D.C. Andrew J. Rotherham is cofounder and codirector of Education Sector, and a senior fellow at the Progressive Policy Institute. He served as a special assistant to the president for domestic policy during the Clinton administration.

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.
