THUMBS DOWN! AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HEAP
The latest Kids Count survey has found that New Mexico, for the first time, has slipped to worst in the nation when it comes to child well-being. According to the survey, more than 30 percent of children in New Mexico were living in poverty in 2011 and nearly two-fifths had parents who lacked secure employment. The results of that report are sobering. Rather than pointing fingers at one another and trying to assign blame, we all need to roll up our sleeves and get to work on improving the situation for our kids. We owe them that much.
