Call to action for child safety laws in Vermont

The recent deaths of two Vermont toddlers are forcing a call to action in the way child safety is handled in the state. Furthermore, it is found that workers not only need to be trained to better assess situations, workloads also need to be re-evaluated. For instance, a recommendation is to include strengthening the child protection workforce by delegating some duties to non-professional staff, and providing more training and guidance for counselors and social workers to include substance abuse issues.

With all the necessary changes, which are needed, the 2015 fiscal budget may not comply with the training and improvements that need to happen. Overall, the state views the failing assessment and vulnerability of Vermont's children at risk, and understand that all parties involved must act in a timely manner to ensure the safety of young lives. Vermont agrees that child safety is in need of immediate attention, and is of the upmost importance.
