Violence increases in Milwaukee schools

A four-part series by Sarah Carr of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel indicates that violence in the Milwaukee Public Schools system is "intensifying." The stories show that gun seizures have doubled, and a quarter of the 300 teachers attacked every year go on to file worker's compensation claims against the district. A review of daily police logs for the last six months shows that officers are called to the city's 11 largest high schools about twice daily on average. More than 120 teachers were assaulted by students or parents in schools last semester alone.
