This study reviews an ideal public education as conduit for responsible leadership in Nigeria. It is evident that public administration predates when society started organizing themselves to pursue common goals. Public education has been perceived as the enlightenment platform for the State; especially in areas where the State has metamorphosed from the maintenance of law and order to the creation of welfare and services to the people. The classical theory was used as the basis of analysis. It is based on the findings of this work that it is concluded that when talking about public administration, we are indeed discussing about public institutions. As a way towards achieving an ideal public administration practice and responsible leadership, public education is therefore recommended.
