    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.
