The New York Times on the trauma to the children

There's a good story in The New York Times today on the enormous trauma experienced by children when they are taken from their parents, and the extent to which what Texas did to the children of Eldorado differs from best practice in child welfare. Alas, as Texas CPS itself repeatedly points out, it does not differ from typical practice in child welfare.

And add the Topeka (Kansas) Capital Journal to the long list of newspapers telling Texas CPS it made the wrong call.
