Kansas DCF Promises More Transparency on Child Deaths

News reports of children dying under the watch of the Kansas child welfare agency have galvanized public outrage. The agency says it will be more forthcoming under a new disclosure law. Up until now, journalists and families looking for answers have often been stymied. From the Kansas News Service, Madeline Fox explains.

This year, the Kansas News Service is documenting the failings of the child welfare system in Kansas, and what’s being done to fix it as the Department for Children and Families is revamped and lawmakers search for solutions. The Kansas News Service is a public media collaboration involving Kansas Public Radio and other public media news outlets dedicated to covering health, education and politics across the state.
