Updated:BOSTON (AP) - An independent group that examined the state Department of Children and Families says the agency should not be held responsible for the death of a 5-year-old Fitchburg boy.
The union representing social workers at DCF released a statement in response to the report.
âFrom crisis-level caseloads and antiquated technology to disjointed policy implementation and shortfalls in oversight, the final report from the Child Welfare League of America reinforces the real and immediate need to address systemic challenges front-line social workers have raised for many years at the Department of Children & Families," the statement read in part.
