Equity, Equality, and Standardization: Expanding the Conversations
Cramer, Elizabeth; Little, Mary E.; McHatton, Patricia Alvarez
Education and Urban Society, v50 n5 p483-501 Jun 2018
In the more than 60 years since the "Brown v. Board of Education" ruling, the United States has been struggling to assure educational equality for all learners. This article will review how attempts at equality such as accountability and standardization movements have failed to close opportunity gaps for vulnerable and marginalized groups, particularly for students with disabilities from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Critical issues are raised about current reforms, in order to broaden educational conversations for a deeper analysis, recognizing the implications for sustained, comprehensive solutions.
