Purpose – The purpose of this article is to explore the relationship between equity and schooling in a post‐industrial society using a scenario of the learning intensive society. Design/methodology/approach – The method used here, but not elaborated as such, is based on a “hybrid strategic scenario method” that is a technique for building “futures literacy”. Findings – Industrial era schooling may be incompatible with post‐industrial heterarchical equity. Practical implications – By questioning the role of schools in developing the capacities necessary for post‐industrial society this article calls for an examination of emergent alternatives. Originality/value – Both the method and conclusions are distinctive and may be valuable for strategic conversations aimed at questioning the assumptions that shape the decisions made today.
