Regular readers of this Blog may find Robert Siegel’s article about reforming the District of Columbia child-welfare system of interest. Mr. Siegel traces the reform efforts beginning in 1994 up to the present. Along the way, the system was seized by the federal court because of its failure to protect children. Eventually, under standards set by U.S. Federal District Court Judge Thomas F. Hogan, the system was returned to the city after it had demonstrated it could effectively operate the welfare system. Today, the system remains under control of the District. Source. Robert Siegel, npr.org. For the complete story, please click here (last visited June 7, 2006, reo).
