A new report designed to rank how well states provide for children shows that some states provide very few opportunities for children of color.
The report, called “Race for Results” analyzes many factors including graduation rates, rates of teen pregnancy, the number of children who tested proficient in various subjects, and the number of children who live in low-poverty areas.
While white, Asian, and Pacific Islander children receive better opportunities across the states, black students receive better opportunities in Hawaii. Wisconsin offers the least.
“Race for Results” suggests states collect and analyze more data to create new policies that will help children of color reach the same advantages as their white peers.
