New data from the National Center for Education Statistics shows that public school safety is at an all-time high with recent drops in bullying rates as well as theft and assault. Schools have done a lot to help, upping security on campus. In just over a decade, the number of American public schools using security cameras rose from 10 to 75 percent.
