There is alot more to this story. Another important part is the fact that the welfare Dep't (revacha) has way too much power which is unsupervised and unchecked. The social workers can get anoinymous reports of "abuse" by parents which can be as silly as sending your kid o school in clothes that dont fit or shoes that are not mateem for a trip. If the school guidance counselor calls it in you had better be prepared for a visit by Revacha and they can threaten (and in fact do) try to pry your kid away from you. Its based upon the recommendation of the "pakid saad" that is assigned and the family court judges just rubber stamp the recommendation. Its a very bad system that needs to be reigned in. There is no due process protection and there are many children sent away to homes and facilities for no valid reason. Its a big business too and there are incentives to allow this to happen.
