Florida 33rd in kids' well-being

TALLAHASSEE -- A national report that shows little improvement in the well-being of Florida's 4 million children is evidence the state should have spent more of its revenue surplus on kids, a statewide advocacy group said Tuesday.

Florida failed to show significant improvement in any of the 10 indicators cited in the Annie E. Casey Foundation's 2006 Kids Count Data Book, although its ranking increased slightly from 35th to 33rd among the 50 states and District of Columbia.

In the two previous years, Florida had been 34th.
