Violence in schools directly affects educators and students by reducing school effectiveness and inhibiting student learning. Additionally, unsafe school environments expose students who may already be at risk for school failure to physical and emotional harm. In recent years, educators and policymakers have voiced growing concern about possible increases in the incidence of school-related criminal behavior. Studying trends in victimization rates provides a picture of the safety of today's schools. source
