Indicators of School Crime and Safety: 2005

"For parents, school staff, and policymakers to address school crime effectively, they must possess an accurate understanding of the extent and nature of the problem. However, it is difficult to gauge the scope of crime and violence in schools without collecting data, given the large amount of attention devoted to isolated incidents of extreme school violence. Ensuring safer schools requires establishing good indicators of the current state of school crime and safety across the nation and periodically monitoring and updating these indicators."

This is the aim of Indicators of School Crime and Safety: 2005.

This report was produced cooperatively by the US Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics, and the US Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics.
