New report says the number of Michigan children living in poverty is rising

 

The Kids Count in Michigan Data Book, released Tuesday by the Michigan League for Public Policy, says 22 percent of Michigan children lived in poverty in 2015, a 15% increase since the end of the recession in 2008. However, project Director, Alicia Guevara Warren, says there was some good news.

 

We're seeing a reduction in the number of students who are not graduating on time, so we're seeing more kids graduating from high school. We're seeing fewer teens who are experiencing birth at a young age, so there are some good things going on.”

She notes that the numbers of those living in poverty are still way too high, along with a disparity of poverty among children of color.
