Is Boston The Best Place To Raise A Family?
Parenting magazine just ranked Boston first on its “Best Cities for Families” list. Parenting says Boston benefits from, “A thrilling hometown baseball team, incredible institutions of higher learning, and a new highway system,” among other things.
Today, the Annie E. Casey Foundation released their annual Kids Count report, which ranked Massachusetts the second-best state in the country for a child’s well being — just behind New Hampshire. So the picture looks pretty good for families and children in our state, but beneath the topline numbers, there’s a more complex picture.
