Equity in Education: Where to Begin?

Heick, T. (2015)

It's easy to see equity in education as a matter of fairness, access, and inclusion, but that's only the case if what's being fairly accessed is a system of teaching and learning that's fluid, responsive, dynamic, neutral, alive, and able to meet the needs of an increasingly global population. For an industry struggling to get every student reading on grade level, this may be a bit much. My gut reaction is that this can only occur through the affectionate expression of the local -- this student in this home in this community, with the school functioning as an extraordinary support system.
