    The advantages of equity for disadvantaged students
    5 December
    Public discussion Created by edSpace

    Here's some more gold from OECD community. Issues like equity and disparity in education are a global phenomena.

    Education can be an engine of social inclusion. It can also help reduce broader social inequality. This can be the case if and only if all students, regardless of disadvantages, are given the same opportunity to succeed. What challenges do teachers face when teaching students from socio-economically disadvantaged homes? How can schools better support teachers in their efforts to provide equity?

    Kia ora koutou - I'm looking forward to reading this report in more depth. Thank you!

    In the meantime, I've been thinking for some time about how Te Tiriti o Waitangi can be used as a medium for inclusion for all young people and communities. Recently I used digital tech as an example of how te Tiriti can be used in this medium to provide us with opportunities and challenges about inclusion in Aotearoa.

    I like your question Justin! I'd like to assume we're involved in the education game because we're committed to creating a fair and just society, economy and revitalised natural world.

          Fantastic discussion. I see this on a daily basis. I also see how different teachers interact with socio-economically disadvantaged students. This is a massive factor that underpins the broader issue of student wellbeing. I look forward to seeing where this discussion goes. Personally, I think we all need to ask ourselves the question, "what do we do to ensure we are nurturing an supporting student wellbeing for socio-economically disadvantaged students"?
