Despite Shootings, Schools Increasingly Safe

USA Today (11/18, Toppo) reports that in the 11 months since the Sandy Hook shootings, “another school attack or safety scare seems to unfold almost weekly.” It would be “easy to conclude that school has never been a more dangerous place, but for the USA’s 55 million K-12 students and 3.7 million teachers, statistics tell another story: Despite two decades of high-profile shootings, school increasingly has become a safer place.”
