Lincoln Chafee: People of color are the future of Rhode Island

[We funded a study], "An Equity Profile of Rhode Island"; it tells us:This is the future of Rhode Island. And the best way to prepare for it is to ensure that all Rhode Islanders have access to quality public education. We cannot afford to have disparity in RI where there are areas of opportunity and others where poverty holds back our economy as a whole. If we can open the doors of opportunity to those who are driving growth, it will be a bright future for all, not just for some.
