WWJ Newsradio 950 AM (Detroit): Report: More Michigan Kids Living in Poverty Since 2008

Rates in Wayne, Roscommon and Lake counties were among the highest. Livingston, Ottawa and Oakland counties had some of the lowest child poverty rates.

Kids Count Project Director Alicia Guevara Warren says there was some good news, though.

“We’re seeing a reduction in the number of students who are not graduating on time,” she told WWJ’s Beth Fisher. “So we’re seeing more kids, you know, graduating from high school. We’re seeing fewer teens who are experiencing a birth at a young age, so there are some good things going on.” April 18, 2017 — WWJ Newsradio 950 AM
