The personal-finance experts at WalletHub recently published a report on 2023’s Best States for Racial Equality in Education and some of the highlights are very interesting. For instance, according to WalletHub:

A recent study found that school districts that have a high concentration of white students receive $23 billion more per year in funding than those that have a high concentration of non-white students. Lower funding can lead to lower quality education, which can affect not only a person’s income trajectory but also their career trajectory for the rest of their life.

To come up with their findings, the WalletHub team compared all 50 states in 6 key metrics. WalletHub’s data compares the difference between white and black Americans in many areas such as test scores, graduation rates, college degrees, etc.

Sadly, Massachusetts ranked anywhere from average to well-below average in most of the metrics looked at which led to Massachusetts being ranked at #41 on the list. Here are the top 10 for 2023’s Best States for Racial Equality in Education according to WalletHub:
