New Jersey Monthly sheds light on the rise of school violence. The story reveals that "in schools throughout the state last year ... there were 13,000 violent incidents ... and these weren't mere shoving matches or fistfights." The investigation uncovers a Department of education report on school crimes showing that "violence is more prevalent in urban areas." The report lists the numbers of simple assaults, aggravated assaults, fights and bomb offenses at each New Jersey school district. The story looks at how more and more schools are installing security equipment, although "the most advanced path to safety, according to experts, is through programs that help students to manage anger."
