Educational Equity (Opposing Viewpoints) (Paperback)
If children are the future, the importance of educating them cannot be overvalued. Why, then, is access to quality education in the US consistently under debate? The US is known as the Land of Opportunity, but the truth is that many children are unable to meet their potential simply because of educational inequities. The viewpoints in this resource examine the difference between equality and equitability; issues such as funding disparities, impacts of gender, race, and socioeconomic status, and lack of resources; and what can be done to ensure that every student has a chance to succeed, regardless of their background.
