BOYAN, NORMAN J. (1966). THE EMERGENT ROLES OF THE TEACHER AND THE AUTHORITY STRUCTURE OF THE SCHOOL. THE NEED FOR TWO SEPARATE STRUCTURES FOR TEACHER PARTICIPATION IN SCHOOL GOVERNMENT WAS DISCUSSED. THE FIRST STRUCTURE WOULD INVOLVE THE PARTICIPATION OF TEACHERS AS MEMBERS OF EXTRA-SCHOOL ASSOCIATIONS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ORGANIZATIONAL POLICY AND EXTRINSIC CONDITIONS OF WORK. THE SECOND STRUCTURE WOULD ENCOMPASS THE PARTICIPATION OF TEACHERS AS PROFESSIONAL COLLEAGUES, IN THE ORGANIZATION, ON ORGANIZATIONAL DECISION MAKING IN EDUCATION AS AN EXPERT DOMAIN. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDES THAT ESTABLISHMENT OF THIS NEW APPROACH, BASED ON THE SEPARATION OF THE DECISION AREAS OF WORKING CONDITIONS AND SALARY FROM THE DECISION AREA OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT, DEPENDS NOT ONLY ON WHAT COURSE TEACHERS THEMSELVES CHOOSE, BUT ALSO ON WHAT CHOICES ADMINISTRATORS AND BOARD MEMBERS OFFER.  THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS AND EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION, THE UCEA CAREER DEVELOPMENT SEMINAR (UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS, APRIL 24-26, 1966).   [More]  Descriptors: Administrator Role, Board of Education Role, Bureaucracy, Collective Bargaining

Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Directorate for Scientific Affairs. (1972). The Emerging Attitudes and Motivations of Workers. Labor/Management Programme. The worker born after 1945, whose generation will soon make up the majority in industrial employment, is usually better educated than his father and his education has often been different in kind too. There has been more emphasis on teaching children to develop their own personality and to question what they find in society, and less emphasis on obedience and conformity. The "new" worker today questions both the purpose and the operation of industry. He is reluctant to accept traditional managerial authority and sometimes even reluctant to enter industrial employment at all. It may well be that if industry does not make adjustments to accommodate changing attitudes, it will become more difficult to recruit personnel, there will be more friction in industrial relations, and it will be increasingly hard to maintain economic growth. This report summarizes conference discussions by senior management experts in Western Europe and Japan about what they perceived to be the attitudes and motivations of workers which had the most influence on economic activity and on the styles or policy of management most likely to succeed in the face of these attitudes and motivations. The meeting showed conclusively that a greater understanding of the human structure of the industrial enterprise could decrease worker alienation and increase both output and satisfaction. Descriptors: Administration, Attitude Change, Conference Reports, Employer Employee Relationship
