A New Deal for Foster Children
A New Deal for Foster Children

Listen
AIR DATE: September 30, 2011

The foster care system in Nevada has long had problems - a lack of parents, a lack of funds and administrative failures. Even though government resources are now severely constrained, the Family Court is set to launch a new initiative to improve the system. The initiative will be launched at a conference in October but we get a sneak preview with Judge Frank Sullivan. We also talk with education surrogate David Goldwater who is trying to help one of the children in the foster care system.

GUESTS
Judge Frank Sullivan, Family Court
David Goldwater, education surrogate
