Batavia School District Leaders: The Journey Toward Labor-Management Collaboration to Help Students

December 27, 2017

Episode 2 In this episode we speak with three educators from Batavia School District, which is located in the suburbs of Chicago. The union leader, the superintendent and the curriculum director talk with Mary McDonald, a senior director at the Consortium for Educational Change. The group has been on a labor-management collaboration journey for many years. They describe where they are as a district, how far they have come together and their willingness to continue to build strong relationships that ultimately benefit students.
