Subject:Re: National Child Abuse and Neglect Registry

My guess is that such a thing is not in existence and cannot go into existence because technically there is no national standard of child abuse or neglect. I know there's an attempt to try and discern a national standard (see the May 2011 issue of the NASW news priefs) through Rep. Dave Camp's role as a committee chair (Ways and Means, I think), but as long as there is no national standard, there really can't be a national registry. Claudette L.
