Our child protection system needs overhauling: Sammutt

I am at a seminar in Brisbane with Dr Jeremy Sammutt who convincingly argues that due to ideology we are failing children- because the number of children in care Australia wide has doubled to 43,000, but only 100 were adopted. 

Instead the kids in care are often in multiple placements, without stability. 

Why adoption is automatically rejected as an option seems madness. Great work!
