2. From the information presented yes I do think the nine members of the Division of Youth and Family Services staff should be fired. These people are responsible for making sure things such as malnutrition don’t happen to children who are put under someone else’s care. They should be fired because they fail to do their job, which is to keep kids from being in any kind of danger whether it be physical abuse or malnutrition. If case works fail to do their jobs by keeping these kids safe, these kids want have anyone else who will.
