The Department of Education Reports:
8.1 percent of all public school teachers in America had been threatened with injury by a student and that 4.3 percent had been actually physically attacked by a student.
School Personnel Assaulted
When a major case of violence occurs in our schools such as the Columbine incident in Colorado or the Sandy Hook Elementary Shooting in Newtown, Connecticut the news media and our nation rallies to support the victims and their families. A much broader circumstance occurs however that is under reported and demands our attention...the daily physical assault or threat of assault to our teachers and other school personnel.
