An expert panel tasked with monitoring the Tennessee Department of Children's Services (DCS) says the agency has flourished under new leadership, the Memphis Daily News reports. Jim Henry became DCS Commissioner after Kate O'Day resigned early last year following a public outcry over problems at the agency. The report says that DCS has improved the way it keeps track of child deaths and investigations, recruited new foster families, invested in ways to help foster children after they turn 18 and fixed a computer system that had hindered caseworkers.
