DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL

Sandstrom says his task force heard a lot of testimony from foster parents about alleged retaliation by county officials. "We couldn't document actual intentional retaliation," he says, but the fear among foster parents was real. Studen says she's never heard of a single incident of retaliation.

The rewrite of the Colorado Children's Code now pending in the state legislature would at least partially address the confidentiality issue by requiring certain information to be shared with schools or other agencies. But even if the 514-page measure passes as written, the question of whether foster parents are allowed access to information would still be up to the Colorado Department of Social Services.
