What Is Bipartisanship in Child Welfare Policy?

On this week’s episode we talk to Rob Geen, who is leading the new Child Welfare Initiative started by the Bipartisan Policy Center. Some of the initiative’s early activities have included:

-A national survey on public attitudes and views about the child welfare system and how it should operate

-A landscape assessment based on interviews with those working for, involved with, and directly affected by child welfare policy.

-A review of state child welfare legislative activity in recent years.

Geen talked to us about the origins of the initiative, findings from its early activities, and his view on what “bipartisanship” means in the context of child welfare policy.
