FRANKFORT -- A group formed by the legislature to study the feasibility of privatizing foster care says Kentucky should focus on strengthening the system it already has.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that the study group's 26-page report was published Friday. It urges state officials to remember that privatization "is not a 'silver-bullet.'" The report sa the private sector is limited by the same issues the public child welfare agency faces.

The findings will be presented to the legislature's Child Welfare Advisory and Oversight Committee on Monday.
