- The Equity and Inclusion Guide
- Equity requires securing all children’s rights to education, and their rights within and through education to realize their potential and aspirations.3 It also requires implementing and institutionalizing arrangements that help ensure all children can achieve these aims.
- Inclusion requires responding to the diversity of needs among all learners, through increasing participation in learning, cultures, and communities, and reducing exclusion from and within education. It involves changes in content, approaches, structures, and strategies, driven by a common vision that covers all children and the conviction that it is the responsibility of the regular system to educate all of them.
