If Education for All is to be achieved, children and students with disabilities and learning and behaviour difficulties must be given the necessary support. This chapter discusses equity in secondary and tertiary education with a focus on children with disabilities and learning and behavioural difficulties, using an international database developed by the member countries of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). It addresses, from an international policy perspective, five important areas involved in achieving equity in education for all students: resource distribution, gender, access, outcomes and process. A fundamental premise of this chapter is that equity should be understood in terms of maximising outcomes for all students, including those with disabilities and learning difficulties, by finding the most effective balance in resource distribution and access.
