Commissioner Carrion has not really laid out a plan as to how framing the working differently without laying out a concrete plan, strategic , and measurable. ACS does not survey the children and families that receive their services . Wellbeing is after the child has come to care of the foster care system. What about families who need other service how will you help families get the protector factors for families to remain at home. Will you enforce the police of not receiving a child unless their is real imminent risk to the child. The structure of the current system is out of line with really. If you want to change the ACS culture you mugh hire trainers out side of your institution such as the Butler institute. Prevention services are not advertised or place in public survice announcement is the quality of the preventive services. So far you have not involved parents in these policies that you have name nor have the commissioner give any concrete plans for the strategic plan for the agency. I would love to hear more about the things that will be done. What types of services and resources are available. Family assignment response should be city wide and the public service announcement should be speaking to parents. If you want families to talk to you you must understand they are representationing the community

In that study, the authors highlight the dramatic change in family structure since 1970:

“In 1970, 69 percent of Black men without a high-school diploma were married.
-In 2010, 17 percent of Black men without a high-school diploma were married.
The marriage rate among non-college-attending whites and Hispanics has declined precipitously as well.”

Why just spin your wheels repairing the damage after it’s already been done? Why not try to change the culture?

john from office

DeBlasio continues his take over with "people of Color". One must be black, hispanic, gay or something other then a white heterosexual male.

And don't forget that the appointment has to be praised as heroic.

WE ARE BEING EMPOWERED FOLKS, next the city will be emptied and we will all be re-educated in camps in upstate New York. Piles of skulls to follow.

GLADYS CARRION should shock the LEFT by publicly addressing (and disparaging) the disastrous and toxic epidemic of SINGLE MOTHER HOUSEHOLDS. (or “single mom” households as Brian Lehrer’s guests like to say to defuse its toxicity)

A new study from 2 liberal MIT economists (below) finds that young males suffer disproportionately from single mothers, even more than female siblings.
They graduate much less from high school, from college and are less likely to join the work force, etc. etc.

STICK THE LIBERAL ELITES IN THE EYE (they, of course, are mostly married) and start a campaign to make this a NEGATIVE life outcome and something girls want to avoid.
SAVE young boys! What is ACS for, anyway? Actually DO SOMETHING !!!
