Teaching for Equity, Learning about Discrimination in a Meritocratic Society
Cruz, Fátima; Stake, Robert E.
Qualitative Research in Education, v1 n2 p112­-134 Oct 2012
In this paper, we will examine key points for research attention in the effort to commit educational systems to equity education. We will examine the concepts of equity, equality and discrimination. We will give specific attention to the role of teacher educators. Teachers need to understand and to be able to see social discrimination in educational systems and policies and in classroom relationships. We will claim that equity education holds low priority even in those countries making the strongest efforts at social equity and protection of human rights. And the reason for low priority as we see it is the almost universal demand for discriminating among students on narrow academic grounds.
