Does EQUITY apply to sports in District 87 and Unit 5?
- Every child who wants to play can’t, where’s the EQUITY?
- Every child doesn’t get equal playing time, where’s the EQUITY?
- Why is the score kept? Doesn’t that violate EQUITY?
If EQUITY doesn’t apply to sports, why does it apply to education?
Some kids are always going to achieve more than others. Education should provide EQUAL opportunity, not try to create EQUAL outcomes. That will never happen but it will diminish the achievements of those who strive for excellence.
Race has no place achievement. Just like sports, those who want to excel do. Some may have more natural talent than others, just like in the classroom. EQUITY will never achieve EQUAL.
Equal has nothing to do with race
Anti-racist teaching has nothing to do with EQUITY or EQUALITY – just division.
