In The Moment ... June 18, 2019 Show 598 Hour 1

Since 1990, the number of children in South Dakota has grown by more than 15,000. More kids means greater investments to ensure all kids reach their full potential.

An annual study called Kids Count Data Book from the Annie E. Casey Foundation shows progress in helping the state's children thrive.

Carole Cochrane is the coordinator for South Dakota KIDS COUNT. She joins In The Moment to discuss the data.

Lori Walsh is the host and senior producer of In the Moment.
