African American Children in the Modern Child Welfare System: A Legacy of the Flemming Rule.
Lawrence-Webb, Claudia
Child Welfare, v76 n1 p9-30 Jan-Feb 1997
Claims that children of color are disproportionately represented in the child welfare system and links this condition to the Flemming Rule implemented during the Eisenhower administration. Suggests that the Flemming Rule, although intended to be constructive, was negatively implemented, leading to long-term serious consequences for African American children. Discusses implications for future policies. (MOK)
