      Black families pondering a move to the Midwest might want to read this, especially if they have young children. According to a national report, Wisconsin has been ranked the worst state in the country when it comes to racial disparities for children.

The Annie E. Casey Foundation, a 66-year-old charitable organization concentrating on family issues and well-being, spearheaded the study.  “Race for Results: Building a Path to Opportunity for All Children”  scored states according to 12 different factors, from educational access to socioeconomic status and home life.

Wisconsin scored a 238 on its ability to prepare Black children for educational and financial success, the lowest of all states (the average score was 345). Interestingly, Wisconsin was ranked 10th overall in its preparation for white children.
