Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate and analyze major negotiable issues which are confronting school boards nationwide and which may confront schools boards in large administrative units within North Carolina. The following issues are considered: major national collective bargaining legislation and developing legislative trends involving public school teachers and having implications for North Carolina; the effects of legalized collective bargaining on existing statutes pertaining to management rights; an analysis of the major non-budget issues at the local board level; and an analysis of the major budget issues confronting school boards. The State of North Carolina at the present time has statutes forbidding the implementation of collective bargaining contracts between public school teachers and school boards. The educational hierarchy is receiving increased pressure from teacher organizations within the state to include the teachers in educational decisions which pertain to their wages, hours, and conditions of employment.
