‘Equity at Scottish School – Lois Lurinsky’

This is the second Japan Desk Scotland’s documentary on ‘Equality and Equity at Scottish School’, following ‘Equality and Equity at Scottish School – Andrew Robson’ (2017). As ‘Equity’ takes account of differences among children, it seems worthwhile listening to a different teacher on the same topic.

Lois Lurinsky is Acting Deputy Head Teacher at Hillhead Primary School, Glasgow. “Equality in education is about ‘One size fits all’. Every body gets the same, the same level of support. But clearly that’s not the way people come to school. People come from unequal learning backgrounds and abilities, and unequal opportunities they had before they come to school. Equity is being fair, providing people what they need.” She talks about how the equity principle is delivered in a classroom.
