The 1970’s saw a resurgence of interest in marxism in many academic quarters, including educational studies. Philosophy of education has had its own experience within the general development. In this article I concentrate on one particular debate in philosophy of education on the question of the applicability of marxism to educational theory and practice. This debate occurred in a series of exchanges, over a few years, and is of interest because it demonstrates something of the developments in thinking of both sides of the debate - the marxists and their critics.
