Abstract

'Education today exists within a particular social universe
- the social universe of capital. ' (Rikowski, 2001, pI)
This article touches on three main issues that bear upon
educational research: its socio-economic context
dominant critiques and finally, comments on evidence~
informed practice and research. It is important to consider
these issues as we now increasingly encounter calls for
research that addresses the real world and contributes
towards raising educational standards.
