Kids Count In Nebraska

Nebraska moves up in the rankings in the annual Kids Count report. But, number eight isn’t that great, according to Nebraska Voices for Children. Spokeswoman, Chrissy Hauschel, says the ranking appears better than it actually is. . .

Hauschel says too many children live in homes in which their parents worry about finding work. . .

Also, the Kids Count report discloses that 18-percent of the state’s children live in poverty. The state improved in the number of children covered by insurance and the number of children attending pre-school.
