N.J. Child Welfare Seeks Reform

NPR's Michele Norris talks with reporter Nancy Solomon about new findings in the starvation of four New Jersey foster children. The state blamed caseworkers for failing to check on the four Jackson boys, who were allegedly starved by their adopted parents. But New Jersey's Child Advocate blames managers at the Division of Youth and Family Services for failing to enforce new policies put in place to make the state's foster children safer.
