Second Consecutive Year Records Highest-Ever Number of School Shootings!

The number of school shootings in the United States has recently reached an all-time high.

There were 188 shootings with fatalities at public and private elementary schools during the 2021-22 school year. Approximately two-thirds of them resulted in injury. Fifty-seven of these resulted in death.

The number of shootings in American schools has reached an all-time high for the second year in a row. And there have been more than twice as many gunshots resulting in casualties than were previously recorded: The 93 recorded last year was the highest in two decades.

The information was included in the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) annual crime and safety report, which was released on Wednesday, 13, September, 2023.

Though the authors of the paper advise interpreting data since the pandemic’s inception “with caution,” the figures show a considerable increase in some types of school shootings even in post-pandemic years.

The findings come at a time when the United States is dealing with historically high levels of gun violence. Gun Violence Archive, the overall number of gun-related deaths this year has already topped 30,000. Earlier last summer, the Fourth of July was once again tarnished by the threat of massive mass shootings.
