Information Equity in the Field of Education: A Concept Paper.
This paper provides the necessary conceptual clarification which will allow the notion of information equity to become a meaningful, usable concept upon which to base information oriented policies, programs, research projects, and service efforts in the field of education. It is divided into four major sections: Part I analyzes the concepts of equality and equity and determines the possible interpretations attributed to each; Part II analyzes information equity, focusing on the clarification of information related concepts and the synthesis of these concepts with equality and equity interpretations; Part III enumerates and explains the more practically-oriented issues involving information equity policy decisions and indicates the connection between conceptual and practical considerations; Part IV discusses general policy recommendations, indicating the direction in which information equity policy statements and programs should proceed. References and a bibliography are provided. (Author/FM)
