Term Definition

the state of being the same in some sense such as in quantity quality value or status. In education it often refers to the sense of fair treatment or that each learner receives an equal amount or quality of teaching or other input. The school system however much it endeavours to provide equality is surrounded by inequality as learners bring unequal experiences and abilities to school and have unequal contextual experiences in social emotional cultural and economic terms during their school years thus contributing to unequal educational outcomes.
