  3. 3. A few statistics<br /> Thirty-seven percent of American students report the presence of gangs in their schools.<br />In 2000, 2.5 million was the number of crimes at school in which students ages 12 through 18 were the victims. About 186,000 of those were serious violent crimes (including rape, sexual assault, robbery and aggravated assault).<br />An average of one homicide event occurs every seven school days. School related homicides increase at the beginning of the school year and after winter breaks.<br />200,000 is the number of students in the United States who carry a gun to school, on any given day.<br />Violence remains the second leading<br /> cause of death for Americans aged 15 to 24.<br />
  4. 4. What about Teachers?<br />Annually, over the five-year period from 1998 to 2002, teachers were the victims of approximately 234,000 total nonfatal crimes at school, including 144,000 thefts and 90,000 violent crimes<br />In 2003-04, 10 percent of teachers in central city schools were threatened with injury by students, compared with 6 percent of teachers in urban fringe schools and 5 percent of teachers in rural schools. Five percent of teachers in central city schools were attacked by students, compared with 3 percent of teachers in urban fringe and 2 percent of teachers in rural schools<br />

As a guideline in these situations, teachers are first responsible for the safety of the other students and themselves, second for the involved students, and then to property” (Eggen and Kauchak, 382.). <br />As a teacherwhat do I do ifI am witnessing a violent act, etc.?<br />
