In the 2015-16 school year, 6% of teachers reported being physically attacked by a student from their school. This figure is from a nationally representative survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Education, which noted: "The percentage of public school teachers reporting that they had been physically attacked by a student from their school in 2015-16 (6 percent) was higher than in all previous survey years (around 4 percent in each survey year) except in 2011-12, when the percentage was not measurably different from that in 2015-16."
