"A must-read for all educators, management and union leaders....[T]his is a remarkably thought-provoking work." --School Business Affairs
From the Back Cover
How teacher's unions can serve as advocates of innovative school reform.In this groundbreaking work, the authors make a compelling case for transforming teacher unions to become champions of quality schooling. This new model of teacher unions would be organized around issues of quality teaching and professional development, as well as, economic fairness. The authors propose strategies for expanding the influence of unions by involving them in the setting of educational standards, evaluating teacher performance, and promoting career security, portable pensions, and employment services for teachers. The book maps out new contracting strategies and labor law reforms that would allow unions to be more flexible and responsive to change.
