A history of pedagogy in public administration
This chapter describes the formation of the multiple, varied, and complex strata providing the foundation for public administration pedagogy. The history of pedagogy in public administration mirrors the history of public administration itself as both discipline and practice. The emergence of public administration education as a self-conscious enterprise is irrevocably linked to the Progressive Era. In the decade between 1920 and 1930, solid institutional housings and accepted curricular models for public administration education emerged. The Public Administration Clearing House sponsored a conference to consider appropriate models for education and training. Public administration faculty housed within political science departments increasingly lost stature and students to presumably more exciting, state-of-the-art appeals of mainstream political science. A 1961 survey of graduate education in public administration found a great variety of forms and emphases, but no comprehensive intellectual framework. As public administration struggled with its crisis of confidence, some scholars began to rethink the lessons of the past.
