Minding the Child


Author(s):
Abstract:
Because of abuse, abandonment, and neglect, 11,000 North Carolina children have been placed in out-of-home care. About 27 percent of these children are African-American, and on average they are in the system longer than white children. Jackson discusses the reasons for this and solutions to the problem.
