Secretary’s words not the problem.

Secretary’s words not the problem.

Don Jordan is the Secretary of the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services (SRS). As far as I know he is not running for president. Yet one could be confused since remarks he made on March 18 were still receiving national attention as recently as last Saturday.

Groups from Colorado and Washington DC jumped on Don’s statement about Sedgwick County prosecutors bullying child protection services caseworkers. Of course officials from Wichita and even Governor Sebelius had to comment. I don’t know a thing about the group Citizens for Change or what Don was trying to say. I do know that child welfare is by nature a complex and contentious enterprise.
