Teacher Negotiation Reform: Beating Swords Into Ploughshares #edchat #SOS

Peers, are you leading the change from the classroom? Here's a good read from a NBCT colleague Steve Owens about Teacher Negotiation Reform: Beating Swords Into Ploughshares, also posted on my good friend Patrick Ledesma's blog on Ed Week Teacher Magazine. Check this out!

"Process reform is not enough. Sustainability depends on connecting to a greater goal: excellent student learning. In Vermont, dealing proactively with contemporary policy challenges requires this focus. Collective bargaining agreements must shift away from emphasis on salary and working conditions, management prerogative and taxation, and become education improvement plans in which the traditional concerns become tools."
