What is the problem that is addressed in this research?Capability approach is the broader concept assumed and adopted to address the problem. The author discusses that skill is mostly seen to be the output by all government policy visions such that it must be utilised for bettering the lives of all citizens in economic terms (Bryson, 2013). The government fails to identity the real purpose of the hidden purpose of utilising skills and actually remaining in dark about the usage of skill in broader sense. That workers and employees are only seen to be living in economies and not in civil society, that they are considered as mere skill sets at workplace and not sentient beings is stressing as an argument here and this is the primary problem associated with the skill policy visions of governments across the world. The central concern of modern capitalism considering skill for achieving economic growth for its own sake is a fuss and the use of skills as a capability is not being politically directed to enhance the quality of life through economic and social change.
This is the central problem taken in the article which is amicably addressed here underlining several optimistic assumptions motivated by ontological and epistemological influences. The prime ontological basis of finding the constitutes of reality and how it can be understood, and the epistemological basis of the ingredients constituting valid knowledge and how is it obtained are fundamental foundations which makes educations research more varied and not confined to a single stream of thinking. Ontological basis of finding how is the reality being known in the research, and the epistemological basis of how the knowledge is constituted as valid and how is it obtained, both are the foundations in context of Bryson’s research and how the results and outcomes reflect these contexts.
