The first pie chart reveals that over 71% of the responders do not feel safe in their classrooms. I wonder what they mean by that: Are they afraid of an armed intruder? Do they envision an assault by a violent student? Do they fear an administrator or a peer? And by the way, could a majority of those surveyed come from urban districts and inner cities?
The second chart addresses verbal assault. Almost the same number (around 70%) claim that verbal assault has occurred in their schools. Some of the same questions must be asked to follow up on this question. Where is the verbal assault originating, and who is on the receiving end? Teachers? Secretaries? Students?
Still, how does our school stack up?
