Why the Increase in Sexual Assaults Reported by Schools?


Among the increases noted in last week's annual crime and violence survey was a jump in the number of schools reporting sexual assault nationwide.

The report, "Crime, Violence, Discipline, and Safety in U.S. Public Schools: Findings From the School Survey on Crime and Safety: 2017-18," found that 5.2 percent of surveyed schools reported an incident of sexual assault other than rape. That added up to a total of 7,100 recorded incidents in the 2017-18 academic year.
