School violence down- incidents up PDF Print

The number of violent or criminal incidents in public schools rose during the 2006-2007 school year, even as the overall rate decreased
due to the growing student population, the Associated Press reports. Just over 11,000 acts of crime and violence were reported- a .5 percent increase from the previous year. About 85 percent of the incidents were for drug or alcohol possession or having a weapon that wasn’t a gun or explosives. The Department of Public Instruction released the report yesterday to the State Board of Education.
