Are disabled Arizonans being protected? Why it’s impossible to know | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

Amy Silverman is a serious journalist with a long track record and a good reputation in Arizona. 

As executive producer of KJZZ radio’s “The Show” and as the mother of a child with intellectual and developmental disabilities, she has a keen interest in the wellbeing of Arizona’s more than 45,000 people with these disabilities.

Silverman and her media partners at the Arizona Daily Star chose to examine the job our state does protecting this population from abuse and neglect.

When they sought records related to closed-case investigations by the Arizona Department of Economic Security, the state refused them access on the grounds that it would violate the privacy of disabled people.
