NPR's Don Gonyea reports on serious violent incidents in schools. A recent Department of Education survey found out that as of last spring, violence in schools hasn't changed in the last few years, despite popular perception. About one in 10 schools reported a serious violent episode with weapons in the 1996-97 school year.
