Paper finds inaccuracies in after-school claims

Paul Tosto of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports on discrepancies the paper found in a report the state published claiming that Minnesota has more young children taking care of themselves after school than any other state in the country. They found that the "commission did not have statistics showing Minnesota with the nation's highest percentage of teens home alone every afternoon," and "the commission did not have scientific research backing up the statistic that 'about 50 percent' of young Minnesotans weren't in any structured after-school programs."
