Poll: 1 in 3 parents fear for physical safety of a child at school
Ravell Call, Deseret News
Gallup Politics released polling information Thursday that indicates 33 percent of U.S. parents are very concerned about the safety of their kids at school.
“More than eight months after last December's massacre of 26 teachers and children (in Newtown), U.S. parents of school-aged children appear to be no more at ease than they were immediately after the incident,” Jeffrey M. Jones wrote for Gallup. “Thirty-three percent of K-12 parents say they fear for their oldest child's safety at school, unchanged from last December and higher than the 25 percent at the start of the 2012-2013 school year.”
When it comes to worrying about a child’s safety at school, women are more likely than men to do so (38 percent to 27 percent); nonwhites are more likely than whites (41-28); and people making less than $50,000 are more likely than those who earn $50,000 or more (44-23).
