The Causal Impact of Removing Children from Abusive and Neglectful Homes

The Institute for Research on Poverty at the University of Wisconsin at Madison will host a live presentation on December 5, 2019 from 1:15 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. ET to discuss research findings about the impact of removing children from families under investigation for abuse or neglect. The presentation will cover findings of home removal for young children under the age of 6 and the measurable gains in test scores and reductions in grade repetition for young girls. The presentation will also reflect the long-term impacts that home removal has on the social and emotional well-being of both boys and girls. The research is drawn from a review of two decades of child protective service records in Rhode Island.
