* Educational equity is a measure of achievement, fairness, and opportunity in education. It is dependent on both fairness and inclusion.  It should not be confused with educational equality.  Equity recognizes that some are at a larger disadvantage and aims at compensating for an uneven playing field, whereas equality indicates the same for everyone, despite advantages some may already have.
