Judge Says California Must Pay Foster Parents More

Hosted by

Despite a federal court order, California waited for three years before increasing payments to foster parents, at a total cost of only $2 million a year. There wasn’t enough to cover food, shelter and other essentials for 18,500 kids. Now the judge has finally cracked down. We find out what that means. Also, how come more school kids aged 12 to 17 don’t participate in physical education? A new study shows that 38 percent manage to avoid PE, even though state law requires it. We hear what the consequences might be. On our rebroadcast of To the Point, is a connection between cell phones and Cancer?
