This chapter examines what knowledge is necessary to promote equity in education. It argues that effective innovation to educate all children requires innovation supported by contextualized transfer of educational policies and practices. Contextualized transfer is the process of adapting practices that have demonstrated effectiveness in one context to another while examining the way in which various policy interventions relate to policy outcomes across national contexts, analyzing the dependency of those relationships on context, and determining how differences in contexts might limit the transferability of policy effects. At the core of this concept is an understanding of quality education as the product of a system, rather than the product of a single policy intervention, where context is a core element of this system.

Keywords:   educational equity, educational innovation, universal education, knowledge transfer, educational policy, educational practice, contextualized transfer
