It seems that every time a national report comes out, New Mexico seems to be near the bottom of it.
Well, it has happened again.
According to an annual Kids Count report, our state ranks 48th in the nation for child well-being with poor showings in its teen pregnancy and child death rate, as well as the number of high school dropouts and youths living in poverty.
And once again, the only places worse than us are Louisiana and Mississippi.
New Hampshire ranked No. 1 for child well-being.
