Stories about troubled children -- from babies born with drug addictions to youths abused and neglected in licensed childcare facilities or at home under the watch of social workers -- often are hidden under a veil of secrecy and shielded by convoluted confidentiality laws. Reporters from the NY Daily News, Reuters and the New England Center for Investigative Reporting provide useful tips on how to access hard-to-find information using state and federal public disclosure laws as well as report and write impact-driven stories with the help of often vulnerable sources and innovative storytelling techniques. These investigations can have direct and tangible impacts on laws and policies.
