One too many social workers

Two social workers in charge of the same case is really a bad idea.

See, the way it is supposed to work when the kids get into the private program is that the state worker breathes a sigh of relief and then concentrates the rest of his or her cases. The state worker shows up at permanency hearings and asks the kid how things are going. If everyone is happy, the state worker smiles and leaves again.

That works pretty well.

Probably it is possible for a state worker and an agency worker to both be heavily involved with one kid, but it would help if they actually talked to each other.

It would also be helpful if probation officer kept in the loop too.

I'm just sayin'.
