The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) have released Report on Indicators of School Crime and Safety: 2022.
This is the 25th edition of an annual report that provides the most recent national data on crime and safety in schools. It serves as a reference for policymakers and practitioners to develop effective programs and policies aimed at violence and school crime prevention.
The report highlights select findings from 23 indicators on various school crime and safety topics. It examines data on violent deaths and school shootings, nonfatal criminal victimization, bullying victimization, and teacher victimization. The report also presents statistics on discipline problems, gangs, hate-related speech, weapons, and illegal drugs, as well as data on student perceptions of school safety.
This report includes Indicator 2: Incidence of Victimization at School and Away From School, which presents data from BJS's National Crime Victimization Survey. Each of the 23 indicators is featured in the Condition of Education report on the NCES website.
