Parents and school safety report

About 34% of parents say they fear for their children's safety at school -- up from 12% five years ago -- according to a recent poll. The results also show a majority of parents support having more mental health screenings than having armed police on campus. The level of fear varied. Those with lower incomes, people living in cities, people of color, women, Democrats and parents without college degrees were more likely to express fear for their children than others in the survey. Poll of the public's attitudes toward the public schools. (2018). Alexandria, VA: Phi Delta Kappa.
