Reality: How To Make It Better.
Swann, Joanna
Higher Education Review, v34 n3 p21-33 Sum 2002
Seeks to persuade doubting educational researchers that there is practical value in pursuing truth, thereby opposing non-realist and relativist accounts of educational research. Reiterates Karl Popper's account of truth as a standard at which to aim, and offers a defense of the correspondence theory of truth as a guiding principle for educational research. Outlines implications for improving educational practice. (EV)
