How can DCF improve?
The deaths of four small children in just one month brought renewed scrutiny to Florida's Department of Children and Families (DCF).

DCF's Interim Secretary Esther Jacobo, pictured, says she has a demoralized workforce and that the solution isn't as simple as "pull more, pull less or throw more money."
