OKLAHOMA CITY —
Steven Dow, a member of the advisory panel on children and family issues, said he sees the improvement, but he said more must be done.
“The number of increasing kids in care is obviously very disturbing and the fact that we’ve not been able to increase the number of child welfare workers adequately means we haven’t been able to drive down caseloads to numbers that we wanted,” he said.
“And the fact that we still have young kids in shelters is in my mind a deep concern,” Dow said. “I think there’s clearly a lot of work still to be done and I think some of what we had in mind has not happened as rapidly as we wanted.”
