Public administration of educational sphere in emergencies: general approaches and national features
Irina Radionova, Vira Usyk
The fundamental point of this research is that public authorities should pay more attention to education as a strategic area of society in times of emergency. The purpose of the article is to detect variations (differences) in the reactions of the key actors in the educational process (professors and students) for testing the hypothesis of the rationale for changes in the system of public administration of education. It is a study of how Ukrainian university professors and students react to distance learning during two emergencies: the COVID-19 pandemic (2020-2022) and the military aggression against Ukraine (February-May 2022). The content, additional costs, benefits, restrictions, and externalities of online education were recognized as the most significant disparities. Conclusions on the essential adjustments in the public administration of Ukrainian university education have been drawn based on this identification.
