Schools and universities are increasingly vulnerable to crime and violence. A school is three times more likely to be burglarized than a business, and vandalism costs schools more than $1 billion a year. According to the National Education Association, every hour of every school day, 900 teachers are threatened, and more than 2,000 students and nearly 40 teachers are physically attacked on school grounds. Safety concerns take up too much time and attention.
