Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing

for Whatever Happened to the Music Teacher? How Government Decides and Why

Jury Citation

“For three decades Anglo-American politicians have been reorganizing the public service to follow private-sector management models. As policy insider Donald Savoie illustrates in Whatever Happened to the Music Teacher?, the experiment has been a failure. Then he takes us further, showing in up-close detail how governments make decisions and how to better organize the public sector for results.” – 2013 Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing Jury (Licia Corbella, Jane O’Hara, and Doug Saunders)
