Equality and Equity in Education Finance: a conceptual analysis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Philosophers and philosophers of education have written extensively on subjects related to education finance . The purpose of this chapter is to review and critically examine this literature in order to provide a better understanding of how philosophical thinking can advance policymaking in this area. Structured around current philosophical debates, such as equity vs. equality and rival conceptions of the principles of justice , the chapter will aim to highlight key normative issues surrounding education finance. The chapter will also seek, on the one hand, to assess the limits of current philosophical thinking in this area and, on the other hand, to point to the potential contribution that extending philosophical inquiry to new domains can make towards improving education finance.
