Well, I guess someone over there is catching on! :o)
Just kidding. We need a system but it needs to be accountable. I want to tear down the wall of secrecy and lies that cost many families their children. And, I would like to save more children who have not been protected.
CPS issues are always close at hand. Today at the "Sunshine" Committee where we are charged with making recommendations to the legislature to remove exemptions from public disclosure, there was another run in with a CASA high up.
You should read the paper that they sent in saying Pam Roach this and Pam Roach that. Unbelievable really. Vilifying me is the only way they can try to get the monkey off their backs.
You see, I believe that the CASAs should not be exempt from public disclosure. We should know who they are. And we should be able to know their qualifications. What is wrong with that?
This full of fear (what is it she thinks she stands to lose??) woman testified there would be no more CASA volunteers if they were asked personal information. What a crock.
On another subject I also went on the record saying we need to make public the rotation schedule of the GALS and CASAs so we know if some are preferred over others. Social workers should not be able to ask for some over others. They should be paired randomly. That is how the system is suppose to work. No secret pals folks!
