Strathdee, Rob; Cooper, Grant – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2017
Reform of vocational education and training policy (VET) in New Zealand has been underpinned by the view that VET can contribute more to equal opportunity by creating more meaningful and rewarding pathways into employment, and by neutralising the influence of background factors on achievement.

Wagner, Daniel A. – Reading Teacher, 2017
Children around the world, especially in low-income countries, lack equal opportunities to develop the early skills on which school-based learning takes place.

Miller, Rhonda D.; Katsiyannis, Antonis – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2014
How to address the educational needs of students with limited English proficiency (LEP) is a particularly challenging and often controversial endeavor.

Stevens, Katharine B.; McShane, Michael Q.; Kelly, Andrew P.; Hess, Frederick M. – American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, 2015
Above all else, the American creed is one of liberty and opportunity.

Groff, Peter – Progressive Policy Institute, 2018
Progressives have long understood that access to a quality education is the one factor that consistently and permanently changes the trajectory of a life. As such, creating a strong public school system has been at the epicenter of our decades-long struggle to promote equal rights and equal opportunity for all. For many of America's families of…

Levinson, Meira – Theory and Research in Education, 2015
How can access to public elementary schools of variable quality be justly distributed within a school district? Two reasonable criteria are: (a) that children should have equal opportunity to attend high-quality schools, and (b) school assignment policies should foster an overall increase in the number of high-quality schools. This article…

Byker, Erik Jon – Policy Futures in Education, 2015
Although controversial, perhaps no piece of legislation has the potential to transform India's future more than the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act (RTE). Upon the passage and enforcement of RTE in 2009, the Indian government instituted a series of wide-ranging reforms to India's education system. For example, the act…

Yamada, Naomi C. F. – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2015
In both China and in the United States, policies of "positive discrimination" were originally intended to lessen educational and economic inequalities, and to provide equal opportunities. As with affirmative action in the American context, China's "preferential policies" are broad-reaching, but are best known for taking ethnic…

Flanders, the northern, Dutch-speaking part of Belgium, is experiencing growing intra- and interlingual diversity.

Farley, Amy N. – Education Policy Analysis Archives, 2019
Political scientists have long studied the use of direct democratic ballot initiatives--proposed directly by citizens and put before a statewide vote--as currently allowed in 24 U.S. states. Despite the application of ballot initiatives to legislate education policy, however, education scholars have not yet adequately investigated this phenomenon…

Hanselman, Paul – Sociology of Education, 2018
Are equal educational opportunities sufficient to narrow long-standing economic and racial inequalities in achievement? In this article, I test the hypothesis that poor and minority students benefit less from effective elementary school teachers than do their nonpoor and white peers, thus exacerbating inequalities. I use administrative data from…
