Foster CareAn editorial in the Fort Worth Star Telegram questions whether Texas might have missed the mark in this recent ruling regarding foster care removals, in light of reforms already being attempted in San
Antonia and Houston. “The court decision demands that Texas address issues like placing children in unsafe group homes and lowering caseloads for workers. But it is needless removal that causes the placement of children in unsafe group homes. And it is needless removal that overloads caseworkers. The biggest risk involves financing reform. Texas needs to spend more on child welfare, but it also needs to spend smarter.”
