Foster care: US moves to phase out group care for foster kids

Here is an article by the Associated Press posted on The Christian Science Monitor that talks about how different organizations and government officials are trying to reduce the number of FOSTER children in residential care.  It gives some pretty good insights as to the current trends in residential care.  It also helps explain why many houseparents today say the children are so much more difficult than they used to be.  If states are working hard to reduce the number of children in residential care, it would only make sense that the children that are left would be more difficult.
