Investigators use it to protect low level socio-economic strata (NSE), as well as minorities.

It is this articles thesis that equality, in the sense of giving each student what he/she deserves, and above all, what is needed, must also be applied in a dimension not related to the NSE: aptitudes toward learning.

Key words

Equality, evaluation, education system, socioeconomic level, México.
