One thought on “To retain social workers in child welfare, let them do their jobs

  1. Even though I am in another state and work for CPS, your article is spot on! Social workers have more and more responsibility put on them by state officials who really have no idea what all our job entails, having to do transportation for appointments, etc when we should be requiring foster parents to do so, all while trying to do case management which has turned into putting out fires instead of real social work. And then if a tragedy occurs, then we are the first to blame because we missed something. There isn’t enough hours in a day, week, month or year to do all that is expected of us…thus, the high turnover.
