Racial Bias in the Child Welfare System

Why are there so many children in foster care and why are so many of them Black?  In this episode, I have a conversation with Dr. Ashley Cross, an expert in the foster care field.  We discuss the leading causes of child neglect and abuse and why a disproportional number of children who are removed from their homes are Black.

Take a listen.
