Editorial: Killings put new spotlight on DCF

The killings of six children in the Gilchrist County town of Bell is the first major test for a retooled Department of Children and Families that has pledged to be open and transparent about child fatalities. Bolstered by new state money and stronger laws to protect children, DCF now has the opportunity to make good on its promises. The agency should fully disclose the details of what happened with this troubled family. The goal is to ensure that child welfare workers and the public learn from such tragedies and work to make sure they don't happen again.
