How does Educational Equity help us achieve our mission and goals?

Educational equity is established on the principles of fairness and inclusion. Fairness suggests that the individual characteristics or social conditions of a student should never interfere with a student’s educational potential. Inclusion establishes the basic standard of “education for all.” (OECD Policy Brief, 2008). At PUHSD we strive to ensure that we fulfill each aspect of Educational Equity to enable access to all classes, programs and activities for all students, thus providing them the opportunity for true academic success.

We encourage you to explore each component of Educational Equity listed on the menu to the right. Thank you!
