Drawing on a wealth of knowledge from a varied list of contributors, from the UK, USA and elsewhere, the editors discuss the importance of going beyond equal opportunities. The contributors provide a compelling argument for promoting equality in primary schools. Issues covered include: social class; 'race'; gender; social orientation; disability and special educational needs with reference to all subjects taught at primary school level.
