Looks like another talking shop, are we, those affected by the inherent corruption in the child care system, supposed to be grateful that, once again theories will be discussed, but action will be a bit thin on the ground.
What is required is someone to expose the futility of talk and apply pressure to get to the root of the problem. To point out, once and for all, that the child care system is being run for profit by those with a vested interest in money being made by the insidious abuse.
The participants of this enterprise may think they have the childrens “best interests” at the forefront, however, all they will do is talk around the subject and do nothing concrete to solve the problem of institutional child and parental abuse by the local and national authorities.
