DC School Warns Parents they’ll call CPS if You’re Late to Pick Up Your Children After School

As we have frequently reported here at Health Impact News over the years, very few children in the U.S. seized by Child Protective Services are taken because they are being abused.  Frequently, the threat of having children taken away from their families by CPS is used as a weapon to coerce parents. Recently a school district in Pennsylvania received media attention for threatening parents who were late in paying their school lunch fees of being reported to CPS and possibly losing their children. Now, another report out of Washington D.C. shows how one school threatened parents who did not show on time to pick up their children from school with being reported to CPS.
