WCU ToConductSchool Negotiation Conference Western Carolina University will conduct a three-day conference this month to aid school board members, superintendents and principals in negotiating issues and disputes. The conference on "professional negotiations" will be held July 18-20 in Hinds University Center on Uie WCU campus. Registration will be limited to 200 participants. The concept of public school teachers bargaining collectively with boards of education over salary scales, size of classes, condition of buildings and other issues is relatively new in North Carolina, Tar Heel teachers, however, are rapidly turning to the bargaining table and presenting a challenge to policy-making boards to meet them there. Dr. R, M, Ainsley, head of the W'JU Department of Administration and School Personnel in Uie School of Education and Psychology, organized Uie conference to focus state attention on the techniques of negotiation. There were 98 work stoppages by teachers in the United States during Uie last school year, according to Dr. Ainsley, and some occurred in North Carolina. Better understanding of the negotiating process might have prevented many of the walkouts, he believes. Teacher imposed sanctions against administrative units or even entire statewide systems—threatened in North Carolina last year— may be headed off through skillful negotiation of issues, he maintains. In the discussions here, a nine-man conference staff of experienced educators will examine and direct study of the specifics of negotiations: how it's done, Uie roles of board members, superintendents, principals and outside experts, and some of the pitfalls to be avoided. In addition to Dr. Ainsley, the staff will include: Dr. Lester Ball, University of North Carolina School of Education professor and a former public school superintendent, Dr. Guy Burchfiel, WCU public relations director and professor of education, with experience as a consultant on school administration problems.
