Teacher Employment and Collective Bargaining Laws in California

Structuring School District Discretion over Teacher Employment

A great deal of recent attention has been focused on policies that affect the employment relationship between school districts and teachers. Although there is broad agreement that teacher quality is related to student achievement, there is far less agreement about the degree to which school districts and administrators are constrained in making policies that affect the employment and working conditions of teachers.

In this seminar William S. Koski discusses the extent to which California law and the collective bargaining agreements governed by state law, constrains or facilitates district-level discretion over teacher employment policies and practices.

Speakers include:

  • William S. Koski, Professor of Law and Director, Youth and Education Law Project at Stanford University

Moderated by David N. Plank, Executive Director, PACE
