From the Classics to the Cuts: Valuing Teaching Public Administration as a Public Good
Shand, Rory; Howell, Kerry E.
Teaching Public Administration, v33 n3 p211-220 Oct 2015
This article intends to raise a number of issues regarding teaching public administration in the higher education sector and the value it has for individuals and society. The article explores the issue of value with reference to the teaching and learning of Public Administration as a discipline in the wider societal context. The article argues that the provision of public administration is a vital contributor to societal good, in terms of public service professions and the moral values that underpin the notion of public service. To this end, the article focuses on how we can apply classical theory to the concept of value in the teaching of public administration, linked to recent discussions of the discipline and its role in both theory and practice.
