Reports Highlight Problems In Social Services Agency

Interview between Mark Rumsey and Charlotte Observer reporter Fred Clasen-Kelly

Evidence continues to surface of troubling failures in Mecklenburg County’s Department of Social Services.  11 children whose families were under DSS supervision or had recent contact with social workers have died since 2007.   Now it’s been revealed that the County didn’t publicize the findings of a taxpayer-funded consultants’ report that recommended changes in DSS operations last year .   The Charlotte Observer has uncovered details of this story and reporter Fred Clasen-Kelly spoke with WFAE’s Mark Rumsey.
