Crime, Violence, Discipline, and Safety in U.S. Public Schools, Findings from the School Survey on Crime and Safety: 2007-08 - This report presents findings on crime and violence in U.S. public schools, using data from the 200910 School Survey on Crime and Safety (SSOCS:2010). First administered in school year 19992000 and repeated in school years 200304, 200506, 200708, and 200910, SSOCS provides information on school crime-related topics from the perspective of schools. Developed and managed by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) within the Institute of Education Sciences and supported by the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools of the U.S. Department of Education, SSOCS asks public school principals about the frequency of incidents, such as physical attacks, robberies, and thefts, in their schools. Portions of this survey also focus on school programs, disciplinary actions, and the policies implemented to prevent and reduce crime in schools. (Samantha Neiman and Monica R.
