Are Academic Administrators to Be Trusted?
Van de Pitte, Margaret
Educational Management and Administration, v19 n3 p142-49 Jul 1991
Academic administrators are not generally trusted. Drawing on Plato's "Republic," this article shows that this mistrust is understandable, considering how values are prioritized in academe, how administrators and political life are connected, and how one normal administrative function (implementing others' policies) can presage an openness to moral compromise.
