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.

We all know it's there.

<strong>Eye Off The Wall</strong> presents this shocking expose of the inside of a homeschool family domicile. Not for the feeble minded, dim witted, or faint of heart. This is not a pretty site.

Monea was rarely sick, but had been diagnosed with development problems since birth.

Social workers from the California Department of Children's Services (DCS) arrived at the McBride School for handicapped children in Los Angeles shortly before noon on September 20, 1995. They took five-year-old Monea Hromadko from her classroom to nearby Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, according to her father, without his knowledge. Peter Hromadko, a single parent, said he was shocked when he learned later that evening that she would not be coming home; the state was taking his daughter from him because he and Monea were vegetarians.

DYFS vows to check on 1,000 other kids

State child welfare officials suspended three more employees yesterday as they scrambled to find out why four severely undernourished boys adopted into a Camden County family escaped the scrutiny of caseworkers who had visited the home dozens of times.

Just before the election, Governor Gray Davis signed a bill into law (SB71), which will allow public schools and teachers to question children at any age about their parents and family, or about personal sexual issues, without parental consent.

Before SB71, public schools were required by state law to obtain prior written parental consent before any student could be given or posed any questions regarding sex, family life, morality or religion. The new California law will now only require written notice, which may be placed in a stack of other materials at the beginning of the school year. Fortunately for parents in California, a federal statute sponsored by President Bush, the No Child Left Behind bill, will still put the requirement of prior written consent on all public schools that receive federal money.

If thinking Americans did not realize it already, they should now. CBS's "Evening News" is "Rather" biased.

In order to convince the viewer that homeschooling is a dangerous practice fraught with child abusers and in need of government oversight, CBS' Evening News focused on a few extreme cases from the past decade involving families who claimed to homeschool their children.

The California child welfare system is such a disaster that even the state's Department of Social Services admits families are aggressively torn apart and children unnecessarily placed in foster care.

In L.A. County alone, more than 160,000 children "came into contact" with Child Welfare in 2002; 30,000 are in foster homes -- only one form of foster care.

The modern two-income family is no better off than the one-income family from decades ago.

Social engineering includes the child abuse industry and the sexual harassment industry. Critics refer to them as "industries" because their enforcement policies have established bloated and expensive bureaucracies that slurp at the public trough. The cost to taxpaying families is immense.
