An interesting debate on whether goals should track inequality, or the worst performing group (eg poorest 20/40%). As you say, it is not about reducing inequality alone but inequality gaps need to be narrowed by improving the situation of the poorest. This is an important consideration not only for income, but also other goals. That is why the Education for All Global Monitoring Report is calling for future education goals to be tracked both on the worst performing group (often poorest, rural,girls in most countries) as well as narrowing of education gaps: http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0022/002200/220033E.pdf

Our World Inequality Database on Education (WIDE) also shows that it is possible to track countries progress in this way: http://www.education-inequalities.org/
