CPPP Issues Statement on Child Well-Being in Texas

TX: The Center for Public Policy Priorities (CPPP) issued a statement responding to Texas’s ranking 43rd  for child well-being relative to other states in the 2014 KIDS COUNT Data Book-- The statement calls for investing in prekindergarten, increasing the minimum wage, and expanding health care for the working poor. Frances Deviney, Texas KIDS COUNT director for CPPP stated, “It’s time for Texas to step up its game when it comes to prioritizing our children. With so many other states seeing improvements in child well-being, it’s clear that this is doable, we just need to commit to our kids’ future once and for all.”
