Children Left Behind: How Metropolitan Areas Are Failing America's Children

According to a new report from Diversitydata.org, African-American and Hispanic children in cities across America face severe challenges, especially compared to their white and Asian counterparts. The first in a series, Children Left Behind: How Metropolitan Areas Are Failing America's Children (42 pages, PDF), focuses on the one hundred metropolitan areas with the largest populations of children. The study was developed by the Harvard School of Public Health and the Center for the Advancement of Health, with funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
