Violence Down, Drugs Up In NJ Schools

drugsA new state report finds that New Jersey’s public schools were safer in the 2007-08 school year. The state Education Department says there were a little more than 9,200 incidents of violence reported, down by some 200 from the previous school year. There was also less vandalism and fewer reports of weapons being brought to school. Slightly more students were caught using drugs or alcohol at school. The report is the second time in three years that the state told the federal government that it did not have any “persistently dangerous” public schools. AP
