Organized teachers in American schools by Lorraine McDonnell( Book )

5 editions published between 1967 and 1979 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research examines trends in the noncompensation aspects of collective bargaining by teachers, the factors responsible for these trends, the nature of the negotiations process itself, institutionalization of contractual provisions, and dependence on past practice and political action as alternatives to collective bargaining. The study was divided into two phases: a quantitative analysis of teacher contract data from a national sample of school districts at two time periods (1970 and 1975) and intensive fieldwork in 15 of these districts. The phase 1 analysis indicated that, generally, teacher organizations first bargain over and obtain increases in salary and fringe benefits, then move on to working conditions and job security, and finally to issues of educational policy. Phase 2 indicated that as the collective bargaining process has matured, it has become more professionalized with negotiations conducted largely by professional negotiators on each side. The paper concludes that collective bargaining does not affect significantly either classroom operations or the quality of educational services that teachers provide to students. (Author/LD)
Teacher unions and educational reform by Lorraine McDonnell( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the participation of teacher unions in the education reform process. It analyzes the many roles that these organizations are playing at the national, state, and local levels through collective bargaining and political action. The focus is upon three major issues: (1) the extent to which teacher unions have attained more professional teaching conditions through collective bargaining; (2) the political response of teacher organizations to national, state, and local reform initiatives; and (3) the way in which the interests and activities of teacher organizations are likely to shape successive generations of educational reform, particularly efforts to restructure the teaching profession. The report is addressed to policymakers, teacher union leaders, education researchers, and others interested in enhancing the professional status of teachers. (Jd)
Fiscal containment of local and state government by Rand Corporation( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 1979 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report documents the recent course of events in government spending, taxing, and employment at all three levels of government. It also speculates on the nature and causes of fiscal containment in its myriad forms. The report devotes one chapter to a case study of city budgets in Los Angeles during the five years of rapid growth immediately preceding the passage of Proposition 13. Finally, it investigates the history and current status of the fiscal limitation movement. The report concludes that (1) the current American tax revolt is merely the latest in a historical series, (2) Proposition 13 represents only one form of fiscal limitation, (3) evidence exists that current fiscal limitation measures, though generally slowing the rate of government growth, have not had as great an effect as their supporters had hoped, and (4) fiscal limitation statutes and constitutional amendments are but one of many causes of the restrained growth of state and local government that has occurred over the last five years.

The Effects of the AIDS epidemic on traditional Medicaid populations( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines whether and how Medicaid eligibility for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) affects the distribution of services and funds for women, children, and other covered groups. The authors used both quantitative and qualitative research methods to ascertain whether other groups covered by Medicaid, particularly women and children, were being adversely affected by the HIV epidemic. The qualitative analysis targeted eight states to obtain greater detail on the effects of the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic on Medicaid systems generally and on non-AIDS Medicaid-eligible groups in particular. The results suggest that there were no observable adverse effects on the traditional Medicaid populations because of the HIV epidemic through 1989. As more poor people become ill with HIV diseases, and the AIDS caseload as a whole continues to survive beyond the limits of private insurance plans, demands on the Medicaid program will grow. In the future, competition for Medicaid resources between AIDS patients and other beneficiaries could well occur

The economics of housing segregation by Anthony H Pascal( Book )

9 editions published between 1965 and 1967 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph attempts to separate the observed segregation of nonwhites in U.S. cities into that which is attributable to socio-economic differences between races and that which is attributable to prejudice. The results should have practical relevance where there is a desire to reduce segregation, and a choice must be made on the efficacy of, e.g., 'fair housing' laws versus policies designed to raise the relative income levels of nonwhites. The major hypothesis tested is that all observed residential segregation is socio-economic in character, i.e., is attributable to white/nonwhite differentials in income and wealth, family size and composition, and the job location of its working members. This hypothesis proved untenable and this conclusion was supported by supplementary tests. Neither could much of a case be made for voluntary segregation by nonwhites as an explanation of their residential pattern. (Author)
EBBF : a guide to installing equitable beneficiary-based finance in local government by Rand Corporation( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beneficiary charges are monies collected from the individual consumers of government services. An equitable beneficiary charge is one that minimizes adverse effects on the disadvantaged. The growing prominence of beneficiary charges in local government prompted a program of studies at RAND designed to explore the efficacy and equity of this method of financing public services. The present guide was prepared, with its summary of findings, as an aid for local governments that may contemplate adopting the equitable beneficiary-based finance (EBBF) approach. The body of this guide consists of questions and brief answers about EBBF. The aim is to lend practical assistance to local government officials and managers who are interested in exploring the promise of EBBF for their jurisdictions
AIDS-specific home and community-based waivers for the medicaid population by Peter D Jacobson( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State Medicaid agencies have several organizational options to provide cost-effective health care to the growing numbers of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients eligible for Medicaid. This report focuses on the AIDS-specific home- and community-based waiver option for AIDS patients, made available in 1985 as an amendment to Section 2176 of the 1981 Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. Waivers exempt Medicaid programs from specific statutory and regulatory provisions if such exemptions can be shown to improve cost-effectiveness and delivery of services. The report presents an overview of the home- and community-based waiver program's purpose; the types of waivers for which states may apply; and the waiver application, reporting, and renewal processes. The authors present a review of the literature on the waiver program and identify related research efforts under way that will eventually add to our understanding of how Medicaid programs serve AIDS patients. They then describe the experience of current waiver states (California, Hawaii, New Mexico, New Jersey, Ohio, and South Carolina). The research suggests that there are several ways to make the waiver program even more attractive to Medicaid agencies, including easing the administration and reporting requirements of the waiver, increasing the program's flexibility, and relaxing the requirement that cost savings be demonstrated before a waiver can be granted

Exploring benefit-based finance for local government services : must user charges harm the disadvantaged? by Rand Corporation( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beneficiary charges--fees, permits, special assessments--constitute the fastest source of local government revenue. They promote efficiency in consumption and production and allocate fiscal burdens directly to users. Local jurisdictions surveyed report a wide variety of highly innovative practices. Vertical equity can be preserved through ad hoc price adjustments for target groups or neighborhoods or through comprehensive voucher plans. Considerable revenue might be raised from charges on such exemplary services as civil courts, paramedics, and street lighting, while the disadvantaged are still protected against disproportionate new fiscal burdens. Considerable analytic and political groundwork must precede the implementation of benefit-based finance systems."--Rand abstracts
Fiscal containment : who gains? Who loses? by Anthony H Pascal( Book )

4 editions published between 1976 and 1979 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report outlines the recent course of events in government spending, taxation, and employment at all three levels, and briefly reviews the fiscal limitation movement and its accomplishment. The report also includes the findings from a case study of the recent fiscal history of Los Angeles, which may help explain taxpayer discontent. Prevailing sentiment, as expressed through the American political system, appears to favor containment, if not contraction, in government. Along the road to this objective, some groups are likely to suffer as others gain. The report concludes with as assessment of the social costs and political effects that containment may engender. It is offered in the hope that, armed with foreknowledge, the nation can avoid causing needless harm through unreflective zeal
Men and arms in the Middle East : the human factor in military modernization : a report by Anthony H Pascal( Book )

6 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Assesses the contributions of improvement in manpower and organization quality to military effectiveness of Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq, plus Iran and Turkey. The Israeli advantage in past wars stemmed from manpower and management superiority. The Arab states are changing their outlooks and are receiving substantial military training and advice along with imported weapons. But efforts so far have not overcome the cultural factors that inhibit modernization. Authoritarian behavior patterns, rote education methods, and concern for "face" inhibit delegation of authority and innovative problem-solving. Some countries have shortages of skilled and trainable workers. Although there is evidence of a slow closing of the Arab-Israeli gap in individual level competence, proliferation of untried weapons and molecularization of the battlefield will probably escalate requirements in the organizational and managerial qualities affecting fighting units. No gap-closing between Arabs and Israel is perceptible at that level. Differences in comparative modernization rates may be more significant for other Middle Eastern balances
Picking winners : industrial strategies for local economic development by Anthony H Pascal( Book )

4 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended for local and federal economic development planners, the report is a composite and summary of a series of technical documents prepared by RAND for HUD on the causes and consequences of industrial specialization in local economies. It uses previous findings to build a methodology for selecting promising industrial targets--e.g., business services, corporate headquarters, tourism, durable and nondurable manufacturing--for individual metropolitan areas. Large new databases and computer modeling techniques make it possible to tailor industrial development strategies to local characteristics. One section details an approach for selecting the industries most likely to "take" in a particular economy, while a second section shows how to assess the ramifications of a given industrial strategy for total employment, central city fiscal and economic health, opportunities for disadvantaged workers, and local vulnerability to national business cycles
Cities in trouble : an agenda for urban research by Anthony H Pascal( Book )

The Costs and financing of care for AIDS patients : results of a cohort study in Los Angeles by Rand Corporation( Book )

4 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The economic burden of the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic and its distribution across payers impose major stresses on individual patients and on the health care system. These have been the subject of much concern; however, no standard methodology has been developed that specifically addresses these issues. This pilot study develops a systematic approach to assigning costs to inpatient and outpatient care for AIDS patients and to estimating shares accounted for by the various payers in the system. It demonstrates that a much broader spectrum of care expenses can be estimated by a combination of patient interviews and collection of data on charges from care providers
The qualifications of teachers in American high schools by Anthony H Pascal( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph describes the formal qualifications of the teachers currently teaching in public high schools and notes the variations of qualifications among schools with different characteristics. A survey of an average of 30 randomly selected teachers in each of 340 comprehensive high schools obtained information on: (1) the number of college courses completed in the teacher's primary subject (ps); (2) whether the ps was a major or minor in college; (3) whether or not the teacher was certified in the ps; and (4) years of teaching experience. Results of the survey indicated: (1) there was a rather impressive level of formal qualifications, overall and subject by subject; (2) the highest levels of qualifications were in the humanities, followed by science, mathematics, and social sciences; (3) the ethnic status of the student body had little relation to the level of teachers' qualifications; (4) the biggest differences in teacher qualifications across school types were between schools that send relatively many students to college and those that send relatively few; and (5) the least qualified teachers were spread fairly evenly across all types of high schools. Survey data are displayed in tables. (Jd)
