Description

"The story set out to determine how safe Austin's high school campuses really are by interviewing students, administrators and parents, as well as by looking at aggregate discipline data reported by each high school to the district and, in turn, to the state." The investigation found that schools have a lot of discretion as to what they report -- only the most serious fights must be reported. Consequently, it is hard to know whether high schoolers are safe.
