But, there was one thing that caught my eye in the press release:
During her tenure with Milwaukee County, starting in 1997, Revels Robinson led the way to safely reduce the number of children in out-of-home care from 6,800 to 2,600 by 2003 by accomplishing reunification of children with their families in 70 percent of cases, and 30 percent adopted within 24 months of entering foster care.
Robinson was in charge when a 13-month-old was killed in foster care and her toddler sibling tortured. The 13-month-old's tragic death is said to be the reason Robinson resigned. Let's see...I think I reported that 11 children in foster care tragically died just in Pierce County alone last year and.....
No one resigned.
Robinson will take the place of Cheryl Stephanie, AKA to PRR readers...Cheryl Steponme. Let's see how this works. Both Steponme and interim director, Randy Hart, were defenders of the broken system. We want accountability. We want truth in the courtroom. We want standing for grandparents in dependency cases. I want a more open system so the public can be the watchdogs that we are expected to be.
