Child Welfare To Change To Stay The Same

Earlier in the day, the Business Journal reported that LaCausa was planning on laying off 87 workers. These are the people that were involved in the child welfare program when Christopher Thomas was murdered by his own aunt.

It was reported this afternoon by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that most of the workers would probably be rehired by whichever agency the Bureau contracts with to take over for La Causa. MJS also reports that the two agencies under consideration is the Children's Hospital offspring or St. Aemelian's-Lakeside. My money is still with the Children's Hospital group.

Despite State Senator Alberta Darling and the bureaucrats at the head of the BMCW claiming that they will do so much to change and fix the BMCW, nothing will. The workers will be the same. The training program will be the same. The business model will be the same. The only thing that will change is the new round of alligator tears that and the will shed when the next foster kid dies.

Unfortunately, I can't say that I'm surprised.
