Kids Count OK

Wisconsin ranks 10th in education, 15th in economic well being, and 18th for both health and family values. Those numbers coming from the latest Kids County nationwide report. Some stronger numbers in La Crosse County says Children and Family Center President, Michael Boehm.

Boehm says one number that sticks out negatively across the state is the percentage of teens abusing illegal drugs and alcohol. Nine percent of the state s teens abuse those substances. That has stayed the same, while the national abuse rate has dropped to around seven percent.
