It has been stated that educational inequality is the unequal distribution of academic resources, including but not limited to; school funding, qualified and experienced teachers, books, and technologies to socially excluded communities. There is a distinct relationship between economic inequalities and educational inequalities which represents a failure in our society. Researchers debate that the inequality that exist in education is due to social class and family background and others attribute it to poorly managed schools that produce low achievement for students. Our approach to handling the crisis of educational inequality is to address the policies that have failed these disenfranchised communities.
