Emerging Issues in Classroom and Teacher Safety and Collective Bargaining Implications

This workshop will provide an interactive discussion of emerging issues in the rapidly evolving area of classroom safety and management, including an analysis of recent legislative initiatives, legal requirements, and potential implications within the collective bargaining arena. The presenters will provide an in-depth review of topics including legislative initiatives in 2018 and 2019 regarding classroom safety, including disruptive and/or unsafe student behavior; legal developments in teacher safety, including student “assaults” on teachers; practical steps for addressing student-teacher interactions; and potential collective bargaining issues arising from the classroom and/or teacher safety concerns and initiatives, including a discussion of the legal boundaries and practical tips for addressing or responding to such concerns and initiatives at the bargaining table.
