Study: Kids are safer on streets than in school

Kids spend about 180 days in school each year, making it the most common place to spend their time outside the home.

Researchers at Brown University and Case Western Reserve University analyzed data from emergency room visits.

They found that if a child is hurt in school, the injury is more likely to be something intentional like an assault, than if they're hurt on the streets -- especially middle and high school-aged children.
