The dichotomous thinking of politics and administration produces necessarily for adopting the real needs of development of modern western society. As the fundamental theory of public administration, it prefabricates the research on Basic framework and principles of public administration. Meanwhile, it plays a huge role in promoting the study of public administration theory and practice of government administration, even as a milestone in the history of public administration.The dichotomous thinking of politics and administration is a highly controversial proposition in academic circles. It wins widespread praise, and has also been questioned and criticized by many scholars at the same time. Through the academia criticism on the dichotomous thinking of politics and administration, these criticisms are rational. But it is unfair that the critics partly emphasis on the side of similarities of politics and administration, while ignoring the side of differences. Moreover, most critics of the dichotomous thinking of politics and administration think that the dichotomous thinking of politics and administration completely advocates the separation of politics and administration. In fact, the voice behind the criticism implies a serious misunderstanding, because neither Wilson nor Goodnow ignore the close relationship between politics and administration. With the advent of post-industrial society, the boundaries of politics and administration are blurring, but this does not subvert the core value of the dichotomous thinking of politics and administration. So it is early to assert that the model of the dichotomous thinking of politics and administration is end. Certainly, the dichotomous thinking of politics and administration has its value and inevitable limitations as a product of specific historical conditions. It is a theoretical problem, and also a practical issue about how to evaluate the dichotomous thinking of politics and administration. This has a profound impact on the study of public administration theory and practice of government Management.Although China’s national conditions is very different from Western countries’, the dichotomous thinking of politics and administration still has signification of reference to us. Therefore, the draw does not mean to completely accept, the process of reference should always be based on China’s national conditions, and on the actual situation of China.

The Research in the Application of Motivation Method in Institutions (Education Papers posted on April 4th, 2015 )

Motivation problem is a core vocabulary of contemporary Economics. After longyears of development, the motivation theory has formed its unique knowledge systemand contains many schools, including content motivation theories, such as Maslow’sneed level theory, dual factors theory of Herzberg and ERG theory of Alderfer, processmotivation theories, such as expecting theory, fair theory, establishing goal theory andPorter and Lawler’s incentive process model, etc. Motivation theory is classified intodifferent types under different perspective of classification. This thesis discusses contentmotivation theory, process motivation theory and reinforcement theory under theperspective of Economics. Motivation theory is intended to improve the enthusiasm ofthe employees, so the motivation theory offers a targeted and practical guidance andoffers significant theory support to the production and development of enterprises. Thescholars of our country have also researched into the motivation theory. Their research,which is often in western discourse, is limited in the range of western classicmotivation theory. Without considering Chinese Social reality, Chinese scholars’motivation theory is of little Chinese characteristics and of little help to solve Chineseproblems. In the meantime, problems have arisen in the application of motivation theoryin Chinese enterprises. For example, people tend to think money and promotion are onlyways of motivation and ignore Maslow’s theory that people’s demand for socialrecognition and respect is to be satisfied after Basic needs are met. In addition,motivation by money is impossible to avoid marginal diminishing effect. There are alsomany problems in the application of motivation theory by the institutions in China. Thiskind of situation also exists in one exploration institution in Liaoning Province. How to use motivation theory correctly to provide advice and suggestions for the developmentof enterprises is the original intention and objective of writing this thesis. Taking theapplication of motivation theory by one exploration institution in Liaoning as a startingpoint, this thesis tries to analyze the application of motivation theory in the publicinstitutions, which is believed to have a profound influence on the motivation of staffenthusiasm of exploration institutions and on the development of public institutions inChina.The thesis consists of four chapters.The first chapter presents an overview of the motivation theory. Motivation’soriginal meaning comes from psychology, and in the later development it wasintroduced in many subjects, especially the Management which gives it a new meaning.Although different people give different definitions, among which there are differenceeven contradiction, the core elements of motivation is relatively clear. Motivation is aprocess to achieve certain organizational objectives, making use of certain externalbehavior to stimulate the motivation and desire of the staff to arouse repetitivebehaviors that the organization wants, thus improving organizational effectiveness. Thefunction of motivation is to encourage staff’s enthusiasm and creativity and realize thecoordinated development of organizations and individuals.The second chapter concerns an introduction of the exploration institutions which isalso called geological exploration institutions. The function of exploration institutions isto implement national and provincial guidelines and policies in geological prospecting,to provide prospecting administration, to undertake Basic and commercial prospectingprojects of mineral resource and environment geological prospecting. The explorationinstitutions bear unique features. In the process of development, the explorationinstitutions experienced a transition from a planned economy to a market economy,from Management subordinate to the ministry to localized Management and alsoexperienced the development of the trough and the climax, during which many problems appeared, one of which is the application of motivation theory.The third chapter mainly discusses the application of motivation theory in anexploration institution of Liaoning Province. This exploration institution adopts severalmotivation methods, which are positive money motivation, reverse money motivation,knowledge motivation, honor motivation, working process motivation and certainevaluation measures. Although motivation methods are adopted, there are still certainproblems in applying motivation theory. First, different units have different motivationmechanisms. Lacking effective feedback and analysis is the second problem. The thirdis that motivation level is not high. The last is that Enterprise culture is relativelybackward. The main cause of these problems lies in the lag in motivation consciousnessand the lack of professional talent.The last chapter puts forward four corresponding measures to make motivation theorywork well in the exploration institutions. The first is to grasp the knowledge of motivationtheory comprehensively and analyze problems on the basis of concrete circumstances ofspecific institutions. The second is to use motivation methods correctly, enhance the studyof motivation theory and attach importance to motivation mechanism to make a soundmotivation system work well. The third is to stress the combination of motivationmechanism and ideological and moral Education to yield twice the result with half theeffort. The last is to use system guarantee, institutional guarantee and supervisionguarantee to give full play to the motivation mechanism in the exploration institutions.

On Administrative Credibility and Its Systematic Control (Education Papers posted on November 26th, 2014 )

The author thinks that the “credibility” essentially comes up from the ethics. Based on the decree of “human nature is evil “, we try to comprehend the administrative credibility by investigating explicit representations of the administrative credibility, while paying attention to its standardiz ation and supervision and believing in the systematic superiority in solving the problem concerning the administrative credibility. In the process of setting up systems, on the one hand we should know that the administrative credibility is connected with such concepts as Social Compact Theory, responsible government, legal state, peace etc., and that the administrative credibility is significant to the society; on the other hand we should know that there are complicated historic and cultural, Social systematic and public identified factors etc. in the current phenomenon of administrative breaking faith. Therefore, we should control the Administration in the political and Economic activities etc. by the way of law and hold that only if by the dominant effects of the outside systems and demos supervision can we perform effective systematic control over the Administration.The first part of this paper dissertates the administration credibility and its theoretical base. First of all, the author states his point of view by nailing down the status of credibility and in traditional ethics defining the concept of administrative credibility. The Basic requirements about the administrative credibility put forward subsequently is the further explanation on the concept of the administrative credibility. Secondly, the author analyzes the nomological foundations of the administrative credibility by connecting the administrative credibility to the concepts of Social compact theory and responsible government. Finally, the social significance of the administrative credibility is discussed in the aspects of legal state, order, social credibility, Economic operation, political civilization, state stability. The second part of this paper discusses the representations and reasons of administrative breaking faith. The current conditions of Chinese administrative credibility loss are summarized as follows: fake administration, administration corruption, regional protectionism, covert operation, policy change irregularity, illegal arrearage. The reasons of administrative credibility loss are analyzed in the aspects of Chinese history and culture, society, systems, public cognition.The third part of this paper discusses the systematic control of the administrative <WP=5>credibility. Many systematic control presumptions are boldly put forward from the macroscopic systematic construction to the concrete systematic maintenance by advising improving such systems as supervising administration system, private right protection system and the governmental Economic administration function, government affair publicity system, administrative credibility principles and state compensation system, state civil servant system and the systems concerning administration contracts.

Research on Management Functional Division of Rural Public Health and Optimal Strategy (Education Papers posted on November 7th, 2014 )

ObjectiveRural public Health is an important assurance for Social stability and Economic development. The optimal strategy analysis on Management functional division of rural public Health is designed to aim at looking for these issues that the structure of rural public Health administration and performing function faced, determining who should take the main responsibility for rural public health administration and fundamental and feasible functional division. An optimal strategy is recommended for the development of rural public health administration.MethodsThe methods of stratified typical sampling and random sampling have been chosen. The information about function implementation of those main administrative organizations has been collected. Through individual depth interview, nominal group discussion, and the result of document study, we obtain main embarrassment in the process of administration. Descriptive statistics is applied to analysis the results of the questionnaire.Results1. There are at least 14 related departments of rural public health administration in county level. A phenomenon exists in performing function repeatedly and cooperating difficultly in a certain degree. Township Health Center performs the Management functions of public health in township level.2. The dissatisfactory management functions performed by main public health administrative organization are: Health Bureau focuses on the functions of animal epidemic prevention and quarantine, authentication and surveillance of health related products; Health Inspection bureau focuses on occupational health, Environmental health and cosmetics inspection; The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention focuses on the major chronic non-communicable disease control, organizing health Education and physical examination on professional crowd; Maternal and Child Health Centers focuses on reproductive health supervision, monitoring of birth defects. Township Health Center focuses on supervising health Education that performed by the village clinic.3. There are three aspects of main difficulties lie in front of rural public health administration. (1) Institutional aspect: no root law for public health, repeated functions of administrative organization; (2) Organizational aspect: inadequate supervision on immunization, contorted reimbursement mechanism, lots of problems exist in the process of health law enforcement, unsound disease information surveillance network. (3) Mechanism aspect: the capital Investment on public health by the government is deficient in gross and unbalanced in structure, unreasonable distribution in human resource of public health.4. Public health products have several characteristics, such as non-competitive, non-exclusive, positive external, high cost-effective of input-output. All of the above characteristics determine the government is one who takes the main responsibility in public health administration.5. A kind of blue print is designed for rural public health to adjust its organizational structure:①set up Public Health Committee.②transfer several public health administrative functions of health department to other departments.③integrate the County Hospital and the Maternal and Child Health Care Center.④implement hierarchical management on the Health Inspection Bureau.⑤deprive of the supervision function on public health from the township health center.6. Basic administrative functions of rural public health go like this: the Health Bureau has 19 items, the Health Inspection has 7 items, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has 12 items, the County Hospital (including maternal and child health care center) has 8 items.SuggestionWe suggest that the current inefficient situation of rural public health administration can be changed in these ways:1. The public health and Economic development indicators in the performance appraisal of the government officials should be treated equally.2. The public health root law legislation should be valued.3. The coordination and cooperation among the related public health departments should be adequately functioned.4. The transfer-payments from the central government should be increased, and especially these funds should be distributed to grass roots and poverty area.5. The special funds of public health should be fully assured and be used reasonably.6. Allocation of high-quality management team.7. The health education should be organized continuously.8. The information management network should be built up quickly based on the current resources.

An Examination of the Phenomenon of Growth after Trauma and its Influence on Leadership (Education Papers posted on May 14th, 2014 )

Leadership development programs focus studies on the positive attributes and experiences of effective leaders. From this focus comes the next generation of leadership. This study, however, suggests that there is much to be learned in the development of new leaders from an examination of the traumatic experiences leaders face. The purpose of this phenomenological study was to investigate the influence of growth after trauma on leadership. Using a validated screening tool to determine if a leader who experienced trauma grew as a result, the co-researchers interviewed leaders to investigate the phenomenon of how growth as a result of trauma changed their leadership. The findings of this study revealed that leaders who grew as a result of a traumatic event were more learning centered, more relationship centered, and more purpose centered. Given that these findings are also attributes of effective leaders as documented in the leadership literature, the implication of these findings is that leaders who grow as a result of trauma have the opportunity to be more effective leaders.

Adequacy post-Rose v. Council for Better Education in Kentucky public school facilities: A case study (Education Papers posted on May 13th, 2014 )

The decision in the 1989 landmark Kentucky case, Rose v. Council for Better Education, initiated many reforms to ensure that children have access to an adequate Education, including funding new construction and renovations for school facilities. The purpose of this instrumental, qualitative case study is to describe how the additional state and local funding for a selected Kentucky public school facility affected the provision of an adequate Education. The term adequacy is used in the study to mean the fiscal sufficiency to meet a qualitative set of achievement standards required by the state as indicated in the Rose decision. One recently renovated middle school was purposefully selected based on its relatively lower score on the Kentucky School Report. Selected features: (1) security, (2) technological readiness, (3) lighting, (4) thermal comfort and (5) air quality were examined. Interviews, facility observations including photographic images, archival and contemporaneous documents, and reflexive field notes comprised the data collection. District and school administrators, teachers, and other individuals deemed knowledgeable were selected purposefully and by the snowball method for interviews. Observations focused on the five features and their relationship to teaching and learning. Classrooms were observed without students present. Document analysis was used for contextual information about the school district and the school case. Triangulated data were analyzed in an iterative and holistic process to identify common themes. Trustworthiness of the findings was established through triangulation of data, peer debriefing, disconfirming analyses, the rich description, and field notes. The findings suggest that the additional facilities funding since the Rose decision created a teaching and learning environment that supported the tenets of an adequate education that previously had not been realized. Improvements that support an adequate education were found in three of the five features. Evidence of three additional building features emerged (the facility’s auditorium renovations, added disability accessibility, and classroom renovations according to content area). Enhancements made to these three additional features added to the educational opportunities afforded to the students. The study adds to the knowledge base on outcomes of Kentucky reforms and the relationship between facilities and opportunities for an adequate education.
