“Equality is the ideal of equal access which is fundamental to American democrat, Equity is when some are excluded or lack the knowledge, income, equipment, or training, necessary to participate fully in public discourse they must overcome obstacle to access in order to ensure fairness”. (Kranich). Equality is something that is thrived for by not only public administrators but also by all Americans, several presidents but laws in place to make sure that some of those equalities get carried on throughout the evolution time. The Founders fathers new that equality the came up with the notion that “All men are created equal, before god and beefier the law” (Kranich). With Equity it is important to see that there cannot be fairness along the way without equality and for that reason the two go hand in hand.
“Public administrators have contributed much in helping to create a more equitable, fairer, and more just America. Because public administrators are responsible for Carrying out the laws and policies, we too have important struggles with fairness, justice, and Equality. As a nation, we are not as fair, as just or Equal, as we should be. Public administrators cannot say that these problems belong only to lawmakers”. (Frederickson).
“Equity as we have seen involves trying to understand and give people what they need to enjoy their lives. Equality in contrast aims to ensure that everyone gets the same things in order to enjoy full, healthy lives” (SGBA).It is important to look at this and see that even though we are different we are the same and should be treated that way, it shouldn’t matter your skin color, ethnicity. Religion none of that matters we are all seen as equals.
