Group Says Kids in Wisconsin Could Fare Better
Overall, the view of children welfare in Wisconsin looks better. But the Annie E Casey foundation Kids Count report also finds some problem areas. The state ranks 12th in the annual report but every economic indicator points down. Understandable, says Bob Jacobson with the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families, for a state that is still climbing out of the hole that was the great recession
But, Jacobson complains, the state's new budget bill does little to help families and children still struggling financially.
