Crime and Safety in America's Public Schools: Selected Findings from the School Survey on Crime and Safety. NCES 2004?370
US Department of Education
This document summarizes important findings from the 1999?2000 School Survey on Crime and Safety (SSOCS). Selected national estimates of the amount of crime, violence, and disorder at public schools, and the practices and programs that schools use to identify and diffuse potential problems are presented. Much of this document was adapted from analyses that were presented in two NCES publications,Violence in U.S. Public Schools: 2000 School Survey on Crime and Safety (2004?314) or Indicators of School Crime and Safety: 2003 (2004?004). Data on crime, violence, and disorder in our nation's schools are collected so that policymakers, parents, and educators will have information to identify emerging problems, and gauge the safety of American schools.
