Teaming Social Workers with Officers urged

Across the nation, social workers typically respond, bringing their training in family crises to the scene. They go with police officers, who back them up, providing protection in situations that can quickly turn explosive.<br><br>Yet in Santa Clara County, more than half the time, police officers answer these calls alone. When an officer knocks at the door, frightened children see a police uniform, the handcuffs, gun and nightstick. If they must leave home, they ride to the children's shelter in a squad car with a metal divider and a dispatcher's voice crackling over the radio.

Lynn Pollick was stunned when the man accused of sexually assaulting her teenage daughter, after facing trial and conviction, filed an appeal based on a technicality and was set free on bail.

The Pollicks took a stand, insisting on a change in the law that would keep convicted child molesters behind bars. And they scored a big victory last week in the state House of Representatives when lawmakers voted 105-0 in favor of legislation that would deny bail to those convicted of sexually assaulting a minor while an appeal was pending.

Each year, Indiana's Child Protective Services division takes thousands of children away from parents accused of abusing or neglecting them.

But what happens when the system fails to protect those children once they are in state care- The Eyewitness News Investigators uncovered alarming information about how the system sometimes goes wrong. In one case, a young boy paid with his life. And children being victimized while in state care is not an isolated problem. In fact, we found the state is above the federal limit for cases of abuse and neglect in foster homes. It's a failure to protect that is putting children at risk.

One glaring statistic is that 50% of American marriages end in divorce.

At a time when couples are most vulnerable emotionally, they must make decisions with long-range implications about financial matters, living arrangements, jobs, and property. A new normalcy must be molded and formed, hammered and forged, for everyone involved--most notably, the children.

MINISTERS unveiled plans yesterday to speed up improvements to Scotland's child-protection services following the death of 11-week-old Caleb Ness

The announcement came on the day Audit Scotland, the public spending watchdog, published a damning report into efforts to cut rates of re-offending. It found that 15 per cent of youngsters weren't getting the services which children's hearings had recommended for them.

The police chief in Collingswood confirmed receiving a report that the Jacksons had checked out a library book outlining how to get government aid and grants.

Raymond Jackson is unemployed and deeply in debt, according to his pastor. In recent months, his main source of income appears to have been adoption and foster care subsidies from the state. In addition to the four boys, the parents had two adopted daughters and a foster daughter. <br><br>Keith Jackson, now 14, was enrolled as a special education student from 1996 to 1999, he said. During that time, Vanessa Jackson struck the teachers as an interested parent, according to the superintendent. Mrs. Jackson withdrew him from school in 1999, saying she would home-school him, and submitted a letter outlining a curriculum.

POOR parenting skills, dysfunctional families and television have been named by teachers as the three most significant factors in the decline of pupil behaviour in schools.

Research for NASUWT reveals teachers in both primary and secondary schools believe some parents need classes in how to tackle their children's bad behaviour. <br><br>Teachers also suggest that dysfunctional family life causes indiscipline, as well as other difficulties, in children and that school provides the only stable place for many young people.
