Because violence in public schools is seen by many as a growing problem, several studies have been conducted to look at the impact of nonfatal teacher victimization. However, a large number of these studies have focused exclusively on students as victims and failed to investigate the impact that school-related crime has on school personnel. The review of the literature indicated that (a) the lack of a definition for violence can be problematic, (b) school violence is either steady or declining, (c) urban areas are more profoundly affected than suburban or rural areas, (d) perceptions and acts of violence are two different constructs that both evoke strong reactions, and (e) efforts to determine students' potentiality for violence against faculty is in its early stages.
