Report: Children of color, especially immigrant children, lag in meeting milestones on well-being
Oct. 24, 2017
The Annie E. Casey Foundation has released its report that measures the well-being of the nation’s children and makes recommendations for improvements.
“Race for Results: Building a Path to Opportunity for all Children,” uses a scale of 0-1,000 to rank the welfare of children on a variety of milestones, such as math test scores and kids who live in a two-parent households.
Dana Wolfe Naimark, president and CEO of Children’s Action Alliance, and Luis Avila, campaign director for Demand2Learn, an ACLU effort aimed at eliminating practices that disproportionately push minority children out of school, discuss the report and numbers from Arizona.
