PA: Why the “Foster-Care-at-All-Costs” Crowd Will Never Surrender Their Horror Stories (Opinion)
Chronicle of Social Change – January 25, 2017
Grace Packer’s story is generating headlines in Pennsylvania. But when it comes to “lessons learned,” the usual double standard is apparent. No one is saying the case proves that Pennsylvania relies too heavily on foster care. No one is saying that a push for “foster care at all costs” is endangering children’s lives. No one is asking if middle-class rescue fantasies are taking precedence over child safety. Why not? Perhaps people feel it’s wrong to generalize based on horror stories.
