Public School Violence Down

Assuming the data are accurate and the 2 studies validly comparable, it appears that violence in public schools has gone down.  According to the Washington Post
'"The rate of violent incidents in the nation’s public schools fell between the 2009-2010 and 2013-2014 school years, a period in which security measures such as surveillance cameras became more widespread, according to new federal data released Thursday.
The reported reduction in violence comes even as high-profile crimes, including the 2012 shooting of 26 children and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., have pushed school safety concerns into the nation’s consciousness."
