Databases

The LSE/ARCH conference on children's databases happened on Wednesday: you can access slides and notes from the various presentations on the 'Children: over-surveilled, under-protected' website. There are even mugshots of all of the speakers.

There's been quite a bit of media attention in the past few days, eg the
Telegraph, BBC News and Daily Mail, and today there's a comment piece in the Guardian. This is all the more welcome because of its accuracy - it captures nicely the fact that the 'Children's Index' is only one element in a whole system of information-sharing and assessment of children.
