 The Case for Educational Equality

Show Summary Details


The second potential argument against choice is grounded in the value of educational equality. This chapter establishes the case for the principle of educational equality, which nests in the general value of equality of opportunity. It develops the principle to show what it implies concerning what resources should be devoted to students with disabilities and what the implications are for inclusion, and contrasts it with conceptions of educational equality grounded in multiculturalism.

Keywords: disability; educational equality; equal opportunity; inclusion; multiculturalism
