Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos released the following statement on the 2017 Indicators of School Crime and Safety report:

“While there are positive trends in the annual report on crime and school safety, we know – and tragically have been reminded in recent weeks – there is much more to be done to keep our Nation’s students and teachers safe at school. The Federal Commission on School Safety is committed to working quickly to identify and highlight best practices and solutions that state and local leaders can implement to improve school safety.”
