“The rate of non-fatal incidents in which students felt victimized at school decreased to 35 per 1,000 students in 2010, from 181 per 1,000 students in 1992, according to the 2013 School Crime and Safety Report. The rate rose to 52 per 1,000 students in 2012, the report found. Any type of school crime, the report noted, increases the likelihood of dropouts, teacher turnover and student transfers.
“Over the long term, schools are getting safer,” said Thomas Snyder, the report’s project officer. “That doesn’t mean there’s not a lot of room for improvement.”
