EDUCATION AND SOCIAL EQUITY: ¿HOW DOES EDUCATION CONTRIBUTE TO THE COUNTRY’S EQUITY ?

  • Education saves lives of the poorest boys and girls.

  • Education is key to escaping poverty and it increases productivity and economic growth:

  • Education increases democratic governance, equity and social cohesion

  • Education is a right which enables other rights


EQUITY IN EDUCATION: ¿DOES EDUCATION REACH ALL BOYS AND GIRLS, WHILE TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THEIR OWN CHARACTERISTICS?

In its basis, the educational inequity is related to social exclusion, and it is manifested by a combined set of deprivations and discriminations which interact. It is to say material deprivations -monetary and no monetary- as well as social capital deficits can coexist, and often overlap, with a wide range of discriminations, such as those based on ethnicity or gender.
