Poor kids have greater chances of asthma, Substandard housing being a contributing factor.  What would you change/add if money was no object?  What are your thoughts and experiences?

OMG....debating with you is like debating with a paper bag. Do you know how to answer a question or have a meaningful conversation? Seriously. What would be the role of a social worker doing home inspections, after the said inspection is completed? Who would be inspected?

Oh. Of course! Give those kids something to aspire to. Can we give them some fake Coach bags to go with them? The print ones, of course. Designer bags don't count if one can't read the label on the print from across the room.

So the homes are inspected, then what happens, besides children not being removed? What are the roles of the social workers?

re you looking to remove children from people's homes who don't meet your inspection criteria?

No, Removing children from homes should be a last resort.  But make better inspection standards and increase the presense of social workers as necessary.
