Should Kansas end privatization of its foster care system? Closed Sat 18 Nov 2017 6:02PM
Privatization is a reform strategy that was established in Kansas in 1997. It is an approach to child welfare where the state government contracts with private agencies for the administration of a service. Kansas privatized foster care due to rising problems in the system twenty years ago, yet there are still significant issues in the system - some would say those issues are worse than they were twenty years ago. With this in mind, do you think Kansas should end privatization of its foster care system? Please provide a detailed explanation and let's get this conversation going.

DCF should manage the children and contract out managing the foster parents. In theory privatization should work but humans have mucked it up. I have been a fp in KS both ways and there are +'s to privatization but the negatives are not worth it.
