State Audit Shows Mixed Bag for CPS
A new report from the Texas State Auditor concludes that Child Protective Services caseworkers are handling fewer cases. But those workers aren’t staying on the job as long.
People leaving CPS over the last four years cite poor working conditions and problems with supervisors.
The audit, released March 16, also shows a nearly 400-percent increase in overtime pay for CPS caseworkers between 2004 and 2007.
