Number of Weapons in Schools Increases

A study by IRIS VO – a databank registering incidents in schools – in 250 high schools alleges that in the past three months the number of weapons found in schools has increased by twenty percent compared to last year. Only 28% of the schools inform the police when they find weapons. A spokesman of the databank said that probably only fifteen percent of the number of weapons in schools has been identified. He said that, after two recent deadly incidents in schools and several severe knifing cases, he expects that there will more in the future.
