Make child advocates report abuse

Make child advocates report abuse

Currently, in the state of Michigan, those that are mandated reporters of child abuse are doctors, social workers, teachers and emergency room personal. There is a movement that has reached Lansing that would add court-appointed special advocates to this list.

An advocate’s job is to keep a watchful eye over children in foster care who run a risk of being in an abusive situation. As of now, if they do uncover that a child is being abused, they do not have to report the situation.

Note: But that would put them at odds with the agencies of which they are total stooges for.
