Students' Relationships in School and Feelings about Personal Safety at School. Data Point. NCES 2018-096
Lessne, Deborah; Yanez, Christine
National Center for Education Statistics
This report investigates the relationship between students' feelings of safety in school and their perceptions about the level of crime in their home neighborhoods and school neighborhoods. It further examines whether students' reports of feeling safe in school despite being in high crime neighborhoods are related to students' reports that they have supportive relationships with adults and peers in school. The data used in this report come from the 2015 School Crime Supplement (SCS), a nationally representative sample survey of students ages 12 through 18. Analysis for this report is restricted to the SCS respondents who were enrolled in grades 6 through 12 and who did not receive any part of their education through homeschooling during the school year.
