Students across the country are beginning their new school year. This is usually a time of great excitement. But today, concern over school safety is at an all-time high.
Roughly one-third of today's parents fear for their child's safety in school, according to a poll by an educators' association. That's the highest proportion since 1998 when that number was only 12%. A majority of teens fear a shooting at their school. Last year there were nearly one school shooting a week.
