In her beautiful new book, Illuminating Care, Carol Garboden Murray makes this important statement:
“Almost always in the past, educational equity has been framed by looking forward – getting ready for kindergarten or college or the workplace – but when we illuminate care as a pedagogy, we recognize that educational equity is not about future graduation rates, it is about the here and now. True equity starts when we create culturally relevant caring settings where each child belongs.”

The writer of this piece does not understand the difference between equity and equality. Equality means that we each have the same opportunity to make of it what we can. It is very important that we each have open-ended opportunity and support in our early experiences in life to see what we can do with it. Equity implies a similar outcome, which is a horrible notion. Equity is horrible, because the only way to bring equity is to take from some who exceed to give to some who will not likely exceed, or to hold some back from excelling in the name of fairness. Equity is not a good goal in ECE.
