Federal Report Shows Less Violent School Crime

Education Daily (2/28, Riley) reports that according to a new report from the National Center for Education Statistics and the Bureau of Justice Statistics, "violent crime in the nation's schools has declined between 1992 and 2010." The piece quotes NCES's Tom Snyder saying the report "brings together a variety of sources to present a synopsis of important data about changes in school crime." Education Daily adds that the report's "data is also presented on crime away from school to place school crime in the context of crime in the larger society, Snyder explained, and covers topics such as victimization, bullying, school conditions, fights, weapons, availability and student use of drugs and alcohol, and student and teacher perceptions of personal safety at school."
