Baltimore ranks last in upward mobility, new study says


new study released by a group of economists called the Equality of Opportunity Project sheds light on the conditions needed to produce or prevent upward mobility in America. 

The study finds that in some U.S. cities, children have a chance of escaping poverty; in others, they don't. 

Ranking last for upward mobility was none other than Baltimore, where riots raged last week over the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray.
