dc.description.abstract Each of the NCVRW Crime and Victimization Fact Sheets provides a snapshot of current research and victimization statistics in the United States....Despite attention dedicated to high-profile incidents of violence at school, a majority of people at K – 12 institutions—including students, teachers, and other staff—do not experience or are not exposed to fatal or violent victimization. In fact, several school crime and youth violence surveys have suggested that school victimization has declined since the 1990s. Respondents who do experience violent victimization report that they feel unsafe attending school, that they feel depressed or suicidal, and that they like school less. Students who aren’t exposed to violent victimization may still be vulnerable to other forms of victimization, including bullying (online or in-person), exclusion from peer play, teasing, and other victimizing behaviors. These types of victimization may be more frequent and more difficult to capture. While the Bureau of Justice Statistics and the National Institute for Education Statistics routinely collect relevant and accurate information on child victimization, research has demonstrated that the number of victimizations occurring in school settings may be higher than reported.
