Per the post below, former Rhode Island education commissioner and consultant Ken Wagner writes:

Equity is the closing of four gaps – the belief gap (i.e., deep conviction that all students can achieve at high levels); opportunity gap (i.e., all students have real access to high impact opportunities, including social networking), quality gap (i.e., the opportunity promise is not a false promise – the available opportunities are also of high quality); and the achievement gap (i.e., subgroup outcomes on performance indicators, which often lag the prior three leading equity indicators). Equity is not adequately described or addressed with a focus only on the achievement gap.
