Effects of teacher unions and collective bargaining laws on educational performance by Harris Zwerling Download PDF EPUB FB2

Collective-bargaining laws strengthen teachers unions and give them greater influence over how school districts allocate their resources. A typical collective-bargaining agreement addresses a remarkably broad range of items: unions negotiate over salary schedules and benefits; hiring, evaluation, and firing policies; and rules detailing work and teaching hours, class assignments, class sizes, and nonteaching duties.

The effect of unions on student performance is mixed. Students of average ability who attend school in union districts perform better on standardized tests, whereas low-achieving and high-achieving students perform worse.

However, the overall gain in achievement does not make up for the higher cost.

Lovenheim and Willen believe that these negative impacts on students resulting from collective bargaining laws are “consistent with the “rent-seeking” hypothesis of teacher unionization”.

This “states that unions lead to a re-allocation of resources towards teachers while also making educational resources less productive”. Some larger unions, particularly the National Education Association (NEA), also lobby federal and state lawmakers for pro-education policies and adequate funding.

The ability to negotiate through a teachers' union is determined by state law, as some states prohibit the collective bargaining of public employees (including Virginia and North Carolina).
