dc.description.abstract Equity has attracted considerable attention in the education sector, yet it remains elusive in educational achievement outcomes for many students in developed countries. Equity in education was defined by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in their 2008 policy brief as a measure of achievement, fairness, and opportunity in education where fairness and inclusiveness comprise the two key aspects. Equality is about access to and participation in education, with equal amounts of resource, time, and focus. Equity may require unequal amounts of time, focus, and resource to redress an imbalance and to achieve similar outcomes. Educational equity is about raising the achievement of all students while narrowing gaps between the highest and lowest performing students, eliminating the racial predictability and disproportionality of which student groups occupy the highest and lowest achievement categories and addressing access to resources and opportunity. Given the breadth of topic including gender, ethnicity, social class, disability, religion, and geography, this bibliography excludes vast areas of inclusive education literature, gender analysis, disability and special needs, indigenous, and most of the multicultural literature. The focus is instead on two strands, namely, ethnicity and diversity, creating positive classroom climates with rich curriculum and high-expectancy teachers. en
