Lawmakers Want Closer Look at Kansas Foster Care System

The Kansas House voted this week to create a task force to spearhead improvements in the state’s foster care system.  As reporter Meg Wingerter (wing-git-err) tells Kansas News Service editor Amy Jeffries, lawmakers are sending a message that there’s been enough study of the troubled system and it’s time for action.


That's Kansas News Service reporter Meg Wingerter (wing-git-er) and editor Amy Jeffries, talking about problems in the Kansas foster care system.  The Kansas House voted this week to create a task force to spearhead improvements in the system. 

Retired reporter Dave Ranney covered the Kansas foster care system for many years.  This month, he wrote this opinion piece about the state of the state's system.
