Abstract: A proposed equity model outlines a school-transformation process by questioning tacit cultural beliefs and pondering how education aims are realized in daily practice. The process honors best teaching practice and serves as a stepping- stone for inquiry into the outcomes, values, and criteria guiding curriculum and instruction decisions. Democratic educational aims must supersede emphases on social control and efficiency. (61 footnotes) (MLH)
