A report is being prepared that highlights the wellbeing of children in Tennessee, which will be released on January 11, 2023. WGNS confirmed on Thursday that the report shows children and their caregivers continue to face significant challenges, according to authors of The State of the Child 2022. This year’s release evaluates the most recent available data on child well-being in economics, education, health, child welfare and youth justice.  

WGNS’ Scott Walker touched base on some of the findings… A positive change for children that Tennessee saw was the historic improvement in the number of children living in poverty - with a decline that outpaced the country as a whole. You will be able to see the report in its entirety next week (January 11, 2023). Information in the study is put together by the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth. 

  • Again, the full report will be released on Wednesday, January 11th.
