I am writing an article to discuss whether a recent reform of college entrance examination in my country equally benefits every students,so I give a title that "Education equality on The New College Entrance Examination System Reform". But somebody told me this title wasn't decent enough,since the preposition following equality should be "in" or "of",rather than "on".

So I am curious about which preposition should be used.Thanks!

"Of" is preferable.

Though according to the graph all the prepositions are possible.

Here's an example from Reverso.context.net:

"The project is divided into three segments:  equality in national organizations,  equality in regional and structural policy, and equality in the development of the immediate neighbourhood."


"There will also be equality of status, equality of opportunity and equality before the law."

As about the title l would use "in".

  • thanks for the answer and the method which lets me know how to find the answer :)

  • Well,sorry, I am a bit confused now...If "of" is used much more extensive than "in",according to graph,why the latter is recommended?

  • For the particular case I would say "in". I think the main idea of your research is to analyze the equal education which is stated "IN" this reform.
