Correction

April 27, 2000

An article Tuesday about a drug treatment hearing misstated the statistics on foster care for Maryland children. There are about 13,000 children placed in care outside their homes today, compared with 6,000 a decade ago. The number entering the system each year is approximately 4,400.

The Sun regrets the error.
