To the Editor: Dr Anderson and colleagues1 provided a comprehensive description of school-related violent deaths in the United States. Because these events garner so much publicity, it is important to place them in the context of broader risks to children. School-related violence may have a disproportional impact on societal perceptions and subsequent prevention priorities.
