THE NEW THREE Rs FOR TEXAS KIDS: RELIEF, REVENUES, AND RESERVES
Center for Public Policy Priorities

August, 2010

Texas ranks in the bottom third of states—34th nationally—in a state-by-state study of our children's well-being, according to the 2010 KIDS COUNT Data Book. The study reveals that Texas has the third highest teen birth rate in the nation, and a child poverty rate well above the rest of the U.S.

 

CPPP KIDS Count Director Dr. Frances Deviney delivered these sobering statistics during a presentation this morning at the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center in Austin. An audio portion of Dr. Deviney's presentation can be heard here, and the powerpoint presentation is available for download above. Go to http://www.cppp.org/research.php?aid=1001

 


The Center for Public Policy Priorities (CPPP) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit policy institute committed to improving public policies to better the economic and social conditions of low- and moderate-income Texans. CPPP is home to the Texas KIDS COUNT project. You can learn more about CPPP at http://www.cppp.org.
