National Report Flunks Maryland

A national report gives Maryland a grade of F regarding the release of information of child abuse cases involving death or serious injury.

Two studies released by two national child advocacy groups, First Star and the Children's Advocacy Institute of the University of San Diego School of Law, report that Maryland creates barriers to the release of this information by requiring charges to first be filed in the case and by allowing state officials to repress the information if they deem it to be in the best interest of the child.

Yes they ought to take this issue more seriously. They shouldn't be so lenient about it because we're talking children's lives here. Moving companies in VA can take the cudgels but spare the young ones.
