The purpose of this study was to present an analysis of the Multiethnic Placement Act of 1994. This federal policy addresses placement decisions of minority children in the child welfare system. The findings indicate that minorities are overrepresented at every stage in the child welfare system and experience longer stays in foster care.
The challenges of implementing this policy include the lack of clarity in the law and inadequate recruitment efforts. Implications for social work practice, policy and research are discussed.
