Abstract. The economic foundations of the principle of justice are one of the main ones in the state educational policy. The purpose of this study is to identify the conditions that contribute to the implementation of the principle of equity in the secondary education system. The article is based on the analysis of how fully this principle is implemented in the modern Russian school. The paper considers two main aspects of the principle of justice: justice in relation to the secondary school as a social institution and justice in the educational school environment. The authors draw attention to the principle of residual budget funding in relation to the Russian education system, to the disparity in the quality of education in different regions and in urban and rural schools. The article emphasizes the connection between the implementation of the principle of justice and information inequality in modern society. The authors note that within the framework of the national project “Education”, the state invests significant funds to reduce the disparity in the provision of schools with professional personnel and modern equipment. To find out how fully the principle of justice is implemented in the educational process of Russian schools, the authors conducted a specific sociological study, the purpose of which was to identify the opinions of students in grades 7-11 about justice in the educational process. Based on this study, the authors concluded that the majority of students believe that this principle is fully implemented in the process of training on a five-point system of evaluating the knowledge of a particular student. At the same time, they noted that the assessment of the OGE and use requires improvement and is not always fair. In conclusion, the authors concluded that the implementation of the principle of equity in the school system is one of the factors of successful socialization of young people.
