So the Mills administration is going to use a “bold new framework” to prevent child abuse including providing economic stability, high-quality education, health care, and other supports (“State unveils plan to protect kids by strengthening families,” May 9).

Apparently adding $1 million to the money we have been throwing at the war on poverty, public education and health care is going to turn the tide on this scourge. If only we could have thought of this before.
