Summary

A questionnaire (appended) was administered to a sample of elementary and secondary teachers in Tennessee in three consecutive years to analyze the effects of negotiated contracts on teachers' attitudes toward job satisfaction, interpersonal trust, organizational commitment, and career satisfaction. The findings include a decline in the opinion that longer service guarantees better teaching, and in commitment to teaching as well as an increase in willingness to consider alternative employment and in the view that professionally negotiated contracts are a necessity for all teachers. Over the three-year period, there was a significant increase in the number of teachers who considered themselves "labor" and considered the administration "management" and who felt they would prepare for a different career if they were beginning college again. The authors decline to draw general implications from the data and suggest that their value lies in considering each questionnaire item separately. (Author/WD)
