This article investigates where leading scholars and accounting regulators expect public sector accounting to be taught. Usually, accounting programmes occur within business schools; therefore, current social structures (action logics, beliefs, staff incentives, and graduates’ expectations) do not favour disciplines that are not focused on the private sector. Although this problem seems obvious, it has been left out of the public sector accounting education literature.
