“The nuclear secret of child welfare is that most of the children in foster care should not be there,” said Matt Fraidin, a law professor at the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law, whose law clinic students handled scores of foster cases, some with horrifying narratives of kids taken from their homes after a report only to be returned a month later when no wrongdoing was found.

“Most of the children in foster care are harmed more than they are helped by being taken from their families and by being kept in foster care for too long,” he wrote.
