Summary

This report presents information on personal student victimization from the 1993 National Household Education Survey (NHES), based on the responses of 6,504 students in grades 6 through 12 who were surveyed. The data indicate that unsafe conditions at school are a reality for most students in the United States. The report found that 56 percent of the respondents had personally witnessed some type of crime or victimization at school, including bullying, physical attack, or robbery, and that 71 percent reported that such incidents happened at their schools. Nearly 25 percent of students reported worrying about becoming victims of crime or threats at school, while 12 percent reported being victimized at school. More elementary, middle, and junior high school students reported being worried about becoming victims at school than did senior high school students. The report also found that students at private schools were less likely to witness, worry about, or experience victimization at school, and that girls were less likely than boys to be victimized. A discussion of survey methodology and data reliability is included. (MDM)
