Abstract

Smith, Frey, Pumpian, and Fisher authored the book, Building Equity: Policies and Practices to Empower All Learners (2017) to not only discuss the differences between equity and equality within a school, but to provide tools and examples to go about transitioning a school in order to create a more equitable environment.  The vignettes and strategies shared throughout the book are not simply hypotheticals but are actual experiences of lessons learned – both positive and negative.  The authors strive to convince the readers that when equity, not equality, becomes the focus of a school, students are more likely to realize their potential and work towards accomplishing it.
