Sociologies of Knowledge examines knowledge and educational policy in a changing political, economical and social environment. As the nature and role of knowledge in education is changing, so therefore is the way in which we study it; furthermore, how knowledge is produced, transmitted, and used is being submerged beneath a clamor of voices calling for "useful," practical knowledge for education. A sociology of knowledge is key to understanding why these calls arise and so how best to think of moral, productive knowledge in a plural, clamorous world.
