TOPIC: Invisible Children
6 million children are reported to child protection in the U.S. each year impacting schools, health, crime, prisons and the livability of our communities. Breaking this cycle child abuse and declining quality of life throughout the nation is directly related to how communities address services that make it possible for children to cope and lead meaningful lives. Blaming teachers for failed schools & social workers for babies in dumpsters solves nothing and ruins children.
