New report ranks Arizona among worst in overall conditions for kids

More from this show

The 2018 Kids Count Data Book is out, and it shows Arizona ranks 45th overall in four main areas of kids’ well being: education, health, poverty, family and community factors. About 25% of Arizona kids live in poverty, and fourth grade reading success and eighth-grade math proficiency were down. We’ll get more on that report from Children’s Action Alliance president and CEO Dana Wolfe Naimark.
