Policy Focus: Fixing Our Child Welfare System To Help America’s Most Vulnerable Kids
Naomi Schaefer Riley joins to discuss this month’s policy focus: Fixing Our Child Welfare System to Help America’s Most Vulnerable Kids. This is an important topic because data show that children increasingly lack a safe, permanent, and loving home in America. We discuss the specific reforms that need to come from many different sectors in this country and why the underpinning of any policy needs to focus on children’s safety instead of adults’ needs.

Ms. Riley’s writings have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the LA Times, and the Washington Post, among other publications.
