The ministry of children and family development has once again failed to meet a number of its key performance targets. According to the ministry's latest service plan, the "rate of recurrence of child neglect and/or abuse" by abusive families was 20.1 percent in fiscal 2007/08 - 0.2 percentage points higher than anticipated. The number of aboriginal children in care who are served by delegated agencies was 31.9 percent - 4.1 percentage points lower than expected. And just 78.1 percent of children in care under continuing custody orders were at the grade level prescribed for their age - 3.4 percentage points less than the target.
