New Study Shows Asian/White Kids Begin With Advantages

Share this post

In just three years, numbers from the Census say white children will be in the minority, in the United States. But a new study suggests they'll have much better opportunities in life than black, Latino and American Indian children. ABC News reports by almost every measure white and Asian children begin life with advantages in America - from being more likely to have a normal birth weight, to graduating high school on time. This, according to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, which measured obstacles then created an index of opportunity. On a scale of one thousand, Asians scored the highest, followed by whites, both in the seven-hundreds. Latinos, just above 400. American Indian and African American children, were in the three-hundreds, with blacks scoring the lowest. The study concludes children of color are in "serious trouble" and calls for new policies so no group falls behind.
