Bureau of Justice & NCES Reporting
In June 2014, the Bureau of Justice Statistics and the National Center for Education Statistics released Indicators of School Crime and Safety, 2013, which provides a comprehensive picture of the exposure of students and teachers to crime in schools. While the report’s main focus is public schools, a few of its many charts and tables also extend to private schools. The charts below capture the major findings of the report that involve private schools.
The Indicators of School Crime and Safety, 2011 released in 2012, included this data from teachers.

The following table, based on 1999-2000 SASS data, indicates the extent to which teachers think various behaviors are serious problems in their schools.
