As students prepare to go back to school, more and more parents are thinking about school safety. A recent poll found 34 percent of parents fear for their child’s physical safety at school. That’s almost triple the number of parents from 2013.
And yet schools are among the safest places for kids. According to one study, shooting incidents involving students have actually gone down since the 1990s.

Some parents are even investing in bulletproof school supplies. Illustration: LA Johnson/NPR
