School Arrests Drop 48 Percent in Florida

Good news


 A new state study says the number of students arrested at schools was cut in half over the last eight years, which "correlates" with a decline in juvenile delinquency.

The Department of Juvenile Justice report says school arrests fell from from more than 24,189 in the 2004-05 school year to 12,520 last year, a drop of 48 percent. School delinquency arrests fell 36 percent during the same period.
