Student Victimization in U.S. Schools: Results from the 2017 School Crime Supplement to the National Crime Victimization Survey [open pdf - 710KB]
From the Document: "As the body of research on school violence grows, so does our understanding of the features, causes, and consequences of student victimization (Chouhy, Madero-Hernande, and Turanovic 2017). While variations in rates of student victimization continue to exist for specific student and family characteristics, Finkelthor et al. (2016) suggest that community characteristics also have a large impact on the rates of student victimization whereby communities with signs of disorder and criminal activities are associated with more at-school victimization. Examining experiences of student victimization, Fisher, Mowen, and Boman (2018) report a varied relationship between the presence of security measures in schools and student victimization, finding that schools with higher levels of security measures also have more reports of students being threatened with harm, but not of students being physically attacked or having something stolen."
