• # question_answer Study the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below: Equity and openness in education are concepts many teachers strive to achieve in their own classrooms. The thought of an equitable education is one that many would assume is embedded into the foundation of the school system. This assertion believes that an education will "level the playing field" for students that come from a variety of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. However, many schools sort students based on economic or racial status or the ability level of the student. This sorting process is highly influential in the student's lives after education. Thus, higher achieving students will have access to higher education and well-paying jobs, and lower achieving students will not have this same access. It is firmly believed that education should open doors in their future for any student regardless of race, class, culture or disability. Therefore, it is the academic and ethical duty of the teachers to provide an open and fair education for all students to truly make the school system equitable. What is the true academic goal/duty of the education/educators? A) Classifying the students according to their diversity and educate them B) Level playing the students as per their social and value backgrounds C) Equating the disparities between students for upright education D) Sorting the educational backgrounds for better educational system
