We need to do better

The Annie E. Casey Foundation released its annual child well-being report last week.

The good news: New Mexico no longer ranks dead last in child well-being. The bad news: We’re now 49th in this year’s Kids Count Data Book, an annual national report that grades states on education, health care and poverty.
While no longer being ranked last is definitely a step forward, ranking second worst among states in child well-being is certainly nothing to celebrate.
