Vivek Sankaran Writes About Problematic Approach to Child Welfare

Former Fellow Vivek Sankaran (’01) published an article in The Chronicle of Social Change about his “increasing concern” regarding the approach by judges, caseworkers and lawyers to child welfare (“Your Crisis Can Wait Until Noon,” March 28). “We [may be] losing the human element of what we do and aren’t recognizing the real human needs of each child, parent, relative and foster parent who comes before us,” Vivek wrote.
