If a school or District chose not to report an incident or many, how reliable is the data?
And therefore doesn't that make the data corrupt and useless?
What mandates a school or District to report an incident?
What watchdog enforces mandatory reporting?
What if Administrators empower staff to dictate the tenor or pace of the investigation?
And that staff biases data by dictating the tone, content, and reporting of such incidents?

To 3:02PM ~~ All are good questions. NYSED dictates that each district report these incidents to the state annually. As for mandatory reporting, surely you must jest!! Having said that, I'd say that schools with higher numbers are at least more honest, especially the middle & high schools.

What's more interesting is the question "what is the minimum line you have to cross to count in these statistics?". In other words, are we counting "violent" gestures, "violent" words, "unwanted" physical contact etc, or are we limiting the reporting to actual physical violence that leaves a mark? In other words, even if the data are accurate in some sense, do they really mean what they seem to mean?

To 5:14PM ~~ I'd like to know how these stats compare to the number of calls for the PD at each school. Lots of interesting questions on this subject.

So there is reason to believe that a school with a higher population should have higher numbers because these stats are not percentages but raw data? And if that is not the case we either believe low numbers mean "better" school or liars reporting?

To 6:22PM ~~ They are NOT percentages, but actual number of incidents reported.
