This article underlines the importance of the educational investigation for the improvement of the practice while it questions the difficulty to establish fruitful relationships between both activities. The understanding of which knowledge available in the field of the education does not automatically allow us to improve the educative practice, to a sense that it implies improvement, has encourage me to analyze, of non-exhaustive form, three great subjects that I consider implicated in this difficulty. Thus, after referring to my interest in research, I briefly discuss the roll that the own constitution form of the scientific knowledge, with its (in)fulfilled promises and the political-ideological dimension of education, along with the naturalistic fallacy, have had in the apparent skepticism and the lack of expectations on what today the investigation can offer to the improvement of the educative practice. The article concludes that the problems of the education not only would be solved with more, but overall, with better investigation.
