WZZM 13 Grand Rapids - Statistics Show Improvement for Michigan Kids

Grand Rapids - The statistics are showing improvement in conditions for Michigan children. The Kids Count in Michigan report released today, compares our statistics with other states, and within Michigan from year to year.

One finding: fewer michigan teens are having children. The teen birth rate is now 35.8 per one-thousand teens, compared to more than 50 in the mid nineties. More teens are also staying in school. Only three percent drop out, compared to more than six percent in the mid nineties.

Some people who work with kids credit programs that work with at risk teens, like the new West Michigan Center for Arts and Technology.
