Big data, little kids: How technology is changing child welfare – AEI – American Enterprise Institute: Freedom, Opportunity, Enterprise1st June 2019
Many complain that the world of child welfare is still in the dark ages with communication and technology. Child protective services departments often do not have the data they need to make proper decisions about children’s safety. Parents looking to adopt find that state and county lines are impermeable barriers. Nonprofits that want to help children and families in crisis do not know who needs help and when.
Fortunately, things are starting to change. The big data revolution that has changed baseball, medicine, and other fields has finally come to child welfare. Please join AEI as we hear from experts on the cutting edge of using technology to keep our most vulnerable kids safe and to find loving, permanent homes for those whose parents can no longer care for them.
Join the conversation on social media with @AEI on Twitter and Facebook.
