Foster Care


Foster Care

Foster care is the term used for a system in which a minor who has been made a ward is placed in the private home of a state certified caregiver referred to as a “foster parent”.  The state via the family court and child protection agency stand in loco parentis to the minor, making all legal decisions while the foster parent is responsible for the day to day care of said minor. The foster parent is remunerated by the state for their services.  Foster care is intended to be a short term situation until a permanent placement can be made:

  • Reunification with the biological parent(s)
  • When it is deemed in the child’s best interest. This is generally the first choice.
  • Preferably by a biological family member such as an aunt or grandparent.
  • If no biological family member is willing or able to adopt, the next preference is for the child to be adopted by the foster parents or by someone else involved in the child’s life (such as a teacher orcoach). This is to maintain continuity in the child’s life ~ Wikipedia

The Latest: 7 child welfare workers in Philadelphia fired in connection with 2 false reports about home visits, state officials say – Philadelphia InquirerKALEINAR.COM –


Seven child welfare workers in Philadelphia were fired inFebruary and March in connection with two false reports about home visits, according to state officials. Rachel Kostelac, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Human Services, said three were workers from Community Umbrella Agencies contracted by the city to handle cases, and four were with subcontracted foster care agencies. The report of the firings followed remarks on Friday by a state DHS official, who said that child welfare workers in Philadelphia had falsified reports in response to high case loads.

Raheemah Shamsid-Deen Hampton, Southeast regional director for the state DHS, made her remarks before a meeting of the Community Oversight Board, which oversees Philadelphia’s child welfare system. Asked to respond, Kostelac said the state asked DHS to review caseload information for the staff members who were fired and provide an assessment of the safety of any children and families assigned to them.

Why The Wheels Of Filling Judicial Vacancies Are Slow – The Economic Times


In a 45-minute-long speech, in which his voice choked with emotion, Thakur blamed the central government for dragging its feet on the issue of appointment of judges.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: economictimes.indiatimes.com

On Sunday, at the culmination of the annual Chief Justices Conference, Justice Thakur declared a decision to appoint retired judges as ad-hoc judges as an “exceptional and extraordinary” measure to tackle the dual problem of vacancy of Judges and backlog of ailing cases. Article 224-A of the Constitution allows such a measure in certain circumstances. But this is only a stopgap arrangement. A permanent solution is still pending as hundreds of cases pile up in Indian courts.

The Trouble With Electing Judges


They’re not politicians, so they shouldn’t act like them

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.economist.com

Electing judges is a bad idea because judges are not like politicians. It is fine for a politician to make deals with voters; to say, “Vote for me and I’ll raise the minimum wage” or “Vote for me and I’ll cut taxes.” But it is an abuse of power for a judge to promise—or even hint—that he will decide future cases on any basis other than the facts and the law. Standing for election gives judges an incentive to smile on people voters like and get tough on those they hate. That is hardly a recipe for impartiality.

French


 

French

French is the official language in 29 countries, most of which are members ofla francophonie, the community of French-speaking countries. It is spoken as a first language in France, southern Belgium, western Switzerland, Monaco, certain parts of Canada and by various communities elsewhere.

“Always ask yourself, ‘Who stands to benefit?’ every time a decision [by the International Criminal Court (ICC)] is taken to prosecute a particular leader or not prosecute someone else.”

First among external challenges is the ICC’s dependence on countries to execute its arrest warrants because it does not have a police force.

The court faces other external problems. It inevitably applies its judicial mandate in highly polarized situations, and there is a real danger that it can be seen as a tool to advance political objectives. This risk is reinforced by the inconsistent support from states, especially the Western governments that champion accountability. The inconsistency can make the court seem less like a permanent institution of international justice and more like a light switch at the fingertips of a few permanent Security Council members (foreignpolicy.com).

Attorney General Rt Hon Jeremy Wright QC MP


Attorney General Rt Hon Jeremy Wright QC MP

MPs, their profession can affect the lives of children, who are not their own children.

Jeremy Paul Wright QC PC (born 24 October 1972) is a British Conservative Party.

From 2005 to 2010 he served as MP for Rugby and Kenilworth, which constituency was abolished in boundary changes before the 2010 general election. He was appointed Attorney General on 15 July 2014, replacing Dominic Grieve. For the purposes of this role, he was appointed a Queens Counsel under the Royal Prerogative (Wikipedia).

The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR; French: Cour européenne des droits de l’homme) is a supranational or international court established by the European Convention on Human Rights. It hears applications alleging that a contracting state has breached one or more of the human rights provisions concerning civil and political rights set out in the Convention and its protocols. An application can be lodged by an individual, a group of individuals or one or more of the other contracting states, and, besides judgments, the Court can also issue advisory opinions. The Convention was adopted within the context of the Council of Europe, and all of its 47 member states are contracting parties to the Convention. The Court is based in Strasbourg, France.

Jeremy Wright is a Conservative MP, and so on the vast majority of issues votes the same way as other Conservative MPs. (TheyWorkForYou)

Reply From Rt Hon Jeremy Wright QC MP – Attorney General

I will start at the end of what the right hon. and learned Lady has said. She is quite right to say that the example that we set to other countries is something that should occupy our minds. Again, I make the point that the example we set comes from our actions—from what we do—and I do not think that there is any prospect of this Government or any other likely British Government moving away from a clear wish to protect human rights in this country and abroad. I have set out some of the ways in which the Government have done that.

I think that the right hon. and learned Lady attaches too much significance to the convention and the Human Rights Act. I understand why those who were in office in the Labour Government that introduced that Act feel very attached to it. She must also recognise that that Act and what it attempted to do—no doubt from the best of motives—have been tarnished by a number of cases that followed, which have led many of our constituents to believe that “human rights” is a term to be deprecated, not a term to be supported and celebrated. I am sure that she and I agree that we need to get back to a place where all our citizens are keen to support human rights and their protection.

My final point is this. In terms of restraint and what we are prevented from doing, as the right hon. and learned Lady would put it, by our membership of the convention on human rights, I am surprised that a former Law Officer overlooks the role of our own courts, which are robust in the way in which they hold Government to account and restrict the freedom of manoeuvre of Ministers—quite rightly so. I do not believe that we need to rely solely on the exercises of foreign jurisdictions to restrict our Government appropriately.
