The news about child sex abuse scandals at the end of 2011 could not have been more shocking. When policymakers went to look at statutes, though, some found something more disturbing—some state laws did not explicitly require people such as coaches and athletic directors who might have contact with children to report child abuse. Others did not specify if the requirement for school personnel to report suspected abuse included universities or colleges. Others were not clear about how to make a report or whether or not a report should be made to law enforcement. Our experts took a look at what state laws are under review and what actions states are taking in 2012.
