Fair is not equal, fair is getting what is needed. -unknown
If three different people have three different types ofneeds (ie: one’s hungry, one’s thirsty, and one’s fine),
and they each then receive a hamburger (in the name of equality),
we end up with one out of three needs met.
Guy 2 is still thirsty and Guy 3 has wasted a hamburger.
Equity involves taking care of individualneeds, in order to give everyone a go – at life.
Equity begs that everyone is known by someone.What if equity is more about knowing a person enough to know and help themregulate their preference for stimulation. -Susan Cain
Equity will come when we free people of a predetermined outcome/label. Equity will come when we offer resources per choice and facilitate curiosities.We have no idea the inequity we promote daily, with our labels, our imposed mindsets of what is normal.
Perhaps public ed should be equitable,not equal,not standard,not normalized,not mandated,not compulsory.
