UNDATED (WKZO) – The latest “Kids Count” report shows that while life is getting better for some children in Michigan, its getting worse for others, and more and more of them are being forced to live in poverty.

Jane Zhender-Merrill said the Snyder Administration’s focus on business is creating more poverty and more hardships for children. She added the world Health Organization says when a community lets its children live in poverty, that it pays a price that can go on for generations.

A panel of Kalamazoo Health and Education officials were scheduled to gather Tuesday with the media to break down the numbers for Kalamazoo County.
