Let me spell it out for you. The numbers in reports like that published by the Department of Education are used to make policy -- gun control, security for schools, funding for things like school resource officers or surveillance systems or even metal detectors. The reports are compiled mostly to support policy initiatives by politicians. The people writing the reports, the people compiling the data, and the people submitting the data all know that.
Of course they skew the results to emphasize their own policy preferences.
