Have We Failed Our Children? A Look at Public Policy for Abused Children

Ressler, Michelle

"Child abuse has been documented in American society for many years. Until the late 1960s, however, little had been done to protect the rights of minors in part due to the widespread view that family problems are a private matter and are not the government's responsibility. This article will analyze public policy towards abused children and examine the role of the government bureaucracy in handling their cases."--from page 8
