Alabama often does poorly when it comes to education or health outcomes for children. But a new survey out today offers some good news for Alabama's youth. In the Annie E. Casey Foundation's annual Kids Count report, Alabama rose to 44th in child well-being -- putting it out of the bottom five among states for the first time. Kids Count national coordinator Laura Speers tells WBHMâs Sarah Delia Alabama should take a moment to celebrate its improvement but also reflect on issues that still need to be addressed.
