The Equity Through Education Centre was established within the Institute of Education, Massey University. It is an interprofessional community of educators inquiring into the problems of educational inequity.
The Centre's values include:
- Promoting equity, social justice and diversity in and through education.
- Overcoming educational inequity experienced by those marginalised by personal and social circumstances (gender, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexuality, religion, language etc.).
- Acknowledging the powerful role of teaching in overcoming inequity.
- Promoting presence and participation in life-long and life-wide learning.
