The MacArthur Foundation funded two recent reports (here and here) on juvenile records privacy that rate states according to their compliance with a set of records policies that the foundation considers best practices. The scores are highly variable and mostly on the low side. Drawing on this study, this panel will explore
- Would we all agree that the set of recommended policies are actually best practices? If not, why not?
- Is it a problem that states are all over the place in their policies in this area?
- What can or should be done to change or improve the existing state policies?
