Description

Star Tribune (Minneapolis) looks at Minnesota's state-run foster care system, finding serious abuse and neglect by foster parents had increased dramatically since 1988, in part because of poor screening of foster parents and inadequate monitoring of their homes; the state issued foster licenses to scores of convicted criminals, including armed robbers, sex offenders, wife-beaters and known child abusers; finds that minority children are more likely to be placed in the home of a violent criminal than white children, Dec. 13 - 14, 1992.
