|New Report Highlights Labor-Management Partnerships Transforming U.S. Schools|
Demonstrates benefits of collective bargaining for students, schools, and communities
Washington, D.C. – With school budgets strapped for cash and teachers’ collective bargaining rights under attack, schools and communities are looking for success stories and a dose of good news. A new report from American Rights at Work Education Fund does just that by showcasing labor-management partnerships at work in public schools and underscoring the role collective bargaining plays in improving student achievement.
The report focuses on nine school districts from across the country and highlights partnerships with strong collective bargaining agreements between administrations and teachers’ unions. The schools profiled demonstrate that when educators and administrators work together, the result is improved academic performance across socio-economic divides and increased parent and community engagement. In these schools, teachers and administrators have worked together to find innovative solutions and create opportunities that put students first.
