Lawmaker suggests audit of Kansas child welfare agency’s treatment of same-sex couples

A Kansas lawmaker said he will seek an audit to determine whether the state Department for Children and Families discriminates against same-sex couples in foster care and adoption cases amid questions about why a Topeka councilman and his wife were granted custody of a child who had been cared for by a lesbian couple for 11 months.

The effort from Rep. Jim Ward, a Democrat from Wichita, comes after the Topeka couple, Jonathan and Allison Schumm, were charged in November with one count each of aggravated battery and four counts of endangering a child. The Department of Children and Families had recommended the couple receive custody of a child who had been in the custody of Lisa and Tesa Hines of Wichita.

Kansas DCF plans to lower evidence standard in evaluating child abuse

The state agency tasked with investigating child abuse plans to lower the amount of evidence needed to substantiate a claim of abuse or neglect.

Department for Children and Families Secretary Phyllis Gilmore told lawmakers Tuesday the agency will decrease the standard of evidence it uses when investigating from “clear and convincing” to “preponderance of the evidence.”

In effect, the change will mean that only 51 percent of the evidence needs to point to abuse or neglect actually taking place in order for a claim to be substantiated.

The change doesn’t constrain judges, who decide whether to remove a child from a home. But it will make it easier for DCF to get individuals accused of abusing or neglecting a child onto a state registry.

Kansas has the fourth-highest teen birth rate in the country, and experts say it’s because of the large Latino population in the southwestern part of the state.

The trend is consistent with what’s happening nationwide.

While teen pregnancy rates are down 51 percent overall since its peak in 1990, Latina teens are still one-and-a-half times more likely to get pregnant than the national average and twice as likely to get pregnant as white teens. That’s roughly one-in-three Latinas who ends up pregnant by the time she is 20 years old.
