  •  You're right that school shootings (0+ / 0-)

    in particular have raised the threat level in schools, but those events are, thank goodness, pretty rare.  However, in terms of teachers being killed on the job by students...I can recall zero such incidents in my local (very urban) area in the past 10 years.  Police officers killed on duty....we're up to 4 this year alone.  I'm willing to bet that statistically this pattern would hold up nationwide.  While teaching isn't risk-free, it's not comparable to law enforcement.   Which, again, doesn't mean the police are always right or always justified in their actions.
