Have You Seen or Experienced Bias Incidents or Hate Crimes in Your School?

August 22, 2017 1:00

When hate-fueled episodes of harassment and bias occur in schools, principals and teachers are often on the frontlines of witnessing them and addressing them. They face pressure to prevent and respond to these incidents under the glare of a very public spotlight. But how common is it for hate crimes to happen in the country’s K-12 schools? It’s a difficult question to answer because the data behind such incidents is weak. Education Week is asking readers to help create a fuller picture on hate crimes, including those that take place in K-12 schools. If you have witnessed or been the victim of a suspected hate crime or bias incident, you may report it here: http://www.edweek.org/ew/section/multimedia/have-you-experienced-or-witnessed-a-hate-crime.html.
