SFUSD’s Definition of Equity

The work of eliminating oppression, ending biases, and ensuring equally high outcomes for all participants through the creation of multicultural, multiethnic, multilingual, multiracial practices and conditions; removing the predictability of success or failure that currently correlates with any social or cultural factor.

Systematic oppression is the condition of rules, policies, practice and laws that work in concert to maintain privileges and advantages of those who pertain to dominant culture, namely the culture of White, male. middle-and upper-class, heterosexual, able-bodied and –minded English speaking America, while simultaneously restricting access to groups that have been historically underrepresented in positions of power, government, jobs and other areas of society
