From the Associated Press: Violence Scares Kids Into Avoiding School.
The number of U.S. teenagers skipping school for fear of getting hurt climbed over the past decade, even though violence in schools actually declined, the government said Thursday….More than one out of every 20 high school students – 5.4 percent – skipped at least one day of school because of safety concerns in 2003, according to the CDC survey. That is up from 4.4 percent in 1993.
