Report finds minority children in Connecticut lag in opportunities

A report released Tuesday ranked Connecticut ninth overall in an index measuring opportunity for children.

But minority children in the state didn't fare as well as their white counterparts, according to the report released by the Connecticut Association for Human Services and Annie E. Casey Foundation. White children in the state ranked third overall among the 50 states, but black children ranked 16th and Hispanics 24th.

When looking at disparities between whites and minorities, Connecticut comes out even worse. It ranks 39th in black-white disparities and 46th in Hispanic-white differences.
