BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A new study shows that African American, Latino and Native American students lag behind White and Asian students when it comes to health care access and education opportunities.
The "Race for Results: Building a Path for Opportunity for All Children" report released by the Annie E. Casey Foundation reveals how children are progressing compared with their ethnicity.
"Only Asian and Pacific Islanders are above 50 percent and African American, Latino and American Indian children are lagging far behind in reading proficiently in 4th grade," said Nonet Sykes from Annie E. Casey Foundation.
The report also highlights the success of adults. According to the report, white children are twice as likely to get their associate degrees than African American children while Asian children are three times more likely than Latinos.
