Ohio AG DeWine Wants System-Wide Review Of Foster Care
Ohio’s attorney general wants a comprehensive review of the state’s foster care system, taking a hard look at child safety and high numbers remaining in foster care until they “age out.”
Mike DeWine led a child safety summit Friday in Cincinnati, where a 2-year-old boy was beaten to death last month after being returned to his birth parents from foster care. DeWine says he wants to be sure the child’s best interests always come first in family reunification cases.
He also expressed concern about the number of children “languishing” in the system. He says Ohio has had higher-than-national rates of children remaining in foster care until they reach the age of 18.
Agencies and advocacy groups attended Friday’s event. DeWine plans more regional meetings around the state on child safety.
