There was a surprising increase in school shootings during the 1990’s and early 2000’s and then they quickly fell again. These events are constantly shocking, devastating, and hard to process, but they can be considered atypical and uncommon. This is a dramatic change in the 63 deaths recorded in 2006 2007. Taking into consideration that there are over 50 million children in school in the United States, these data relate to a 1 in 2 million chance.

While the incidents may spike up abruptly, studies demonstrate that the amounts do drop considerably (and fairly quickly). As we’ve seen with the dramatic change between 2003 and the current quantity of report events.
School Violence Data
In accordance with the National Center for Education Statistics, there were 53 violent crimes in 1993. Forty-two of these offenses finished in death.
In 2000, more than 80% of schools reported school violence in their own school. The offenses were recorded as 40 crimes per every 1,000 students. Several offenses were so violent they were criminal and needed boys nudism . About 15 crimes per 1,000 pupils were involved in a violent act requiring the authorities to be contacted. In 2010 those numbers were quite different. The amount of violent crimes dropped to 2 per 1,000 students.
Guns at School Statistics
In the 1990’s it was reported that 25% of students carried a firearm to school at some point during the school year. The amounts have been on a decline since that time. In 1995, the numbers dropped to 20% of students, and since then the numbers have remained quite constant. In 2001, findings reveal it was found that 17% of students brought firearms to school.
Since the all time low in 2001, the numbers have remained steady, with little fluctuation. In 2011, there was a reporting that 15% of students had carried nudist sex photo to school.
* While these pupils usually do not consistently use the guns, the weapons are a risk and should not be in the control of young children while in a school setting.
Teenage Drug Use (not cannabis) Data
Adolescents were recently surveyed on private drug use, and many readily and willingly admitted to using some form of a drug.
In the 90s, drug use among girls was over 75%. The amount of adolescents using drugs began dropping by about 3% per year.
In 1995, “only” 65% teenagers reported using any drugs. The amounts were still high, but considerably declining. The numbers remained similar over the next few years until they reached a low in 2000 of 60%. While there was still room for improvement, it seems that the figures were going on the rise again. With present studies revealing that 70% of students admit to using some type of drugs at some point in their own lives the fact is basic teens are in fact using more drugs as of late.
Drunk Driving Data
In 1982 there were a total of 26,173 alcohol related fatalities. In 1991, the numbers of underage drunk driving fatalities were 3.8 per 100,000 individuals. This was the maximum variety of fatalities resulted from underage drunk driving in the past two decades.
The amount of fatalities has decreased, which shows that teens are not getting behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking alcohol. Between 1995 and 2007, the number stayed under 3 fatalities per 100,000 people. In 2010, we seen the lowest variety of fatalities with a recorded 1.3 per 100.00.
The numbers have significantly reduced to 9,878 in 2011 and lets hope the number of fatalities continues to decline.
Gang Related Violence Data
Although there was an approximate 8 percent fall in gang related violence between 1999 and 2000, the amounts are continuing to grow.
In 1999, there were 27,000 gangs in the United States. The number of gangs and gang-related violence was decreasing every year until it reached its lowest in 2003, with “only” 20,000 gangs. The very next year there was a spike in the number of gangs and their violent actions.
