Treating all people the same.

Why does fairness matter?

When people value fairness they believe in equal opportunity for all. Fairness is a moral value that emphasises the importance of treating all people the same. People that have fairness as a strength will not let personal feelings bias their decisions about others and will always give people a fair chance. This strength is related to kindness, justice and moral reasoning.

What does fairness look like?

Students with fairness might:

  • stand up against unjust behaviour;
  • form positive relationships with a wide variety of people;
  • have a strong opinion on justice and moral issues.



Teachers with fairness might:

  • create a classroom environment that is fair and consistent;
  • not be influenced by others’ ideas and opinions;
  • have strong morals that they role model in their lessons.
