Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Great Lakes Center for Youth Development is presenting a closer look at numbers recently released in the annual Kids Count survey.
GLCYD Associate Linda Remsburg joined The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to discuss the numbers and also talk about options for improving some of the areas.
Remsburg touched on on several areas covered in the survey and said the Upper Peninsula is doing fairly well in comparison with the rest of the state.
Unfortunately, according to Remsburg, in areas such as youth in poverty, the numbers had increased strongly over the last few years.
She also talked about the role of parents, mentors, guardians and other adults in encouraging youth to continue with education as it is the most effective tool against poverty.
