Safety. Climate. Confidence.

There are startling statistics about increasing violence in the classroom. According to the U.S. Department of Education, in the 2011-12 school year:

  • 197,400 (5.8%) of K-12 public school teachers were physically attacked at school
    • Physically attacked includes being hit, kicked, bitten, slapped, stabbed or shot
  • 338,400 (9.9%) of K-12 public school teachers were threatened by students with acts of violence

That translates to an average of 1,105 teachers being attacked every day. And these numbers are going up every year – there has been a 34.5% increase in the number of attacks against teachers since 2007-08.

Districts can take steps now to protect their teachers and themselves in the case of a lawsuit.
