Abstract

Developing more equitable education systems, in which the link between disadvantage, education and life chances can be effectively challenged, is central to establishing a more just society. This presents policymakers, educators and researchers with a moral imperative to act to move education systems in more equitable directions. However, there has been relatively little explicit discussion about what a more equitable education system would actually look like, nor of how the values of equity can be made integral to research, policy, and practice, and used to drive reform.
