Big takeaway is that this result was from a school survey, meaning that it isn't some government conspiracy to inflate numbers of school shooting, it's just schools reporting stuff wrong.

For example some schools conflated "shootings" with "incidents when a gun went off", or just answered a question on the wrong line.
The article criticizes the lack of oversight, but notes the number is within the margin of error for all reported.
The actual number of shootings reported for 2015-2016 is 29 (Everytown for Gun Safety), a shameful number, only rising due to the negligence of U.S. government to act and ban the fucking things.
My country, achieved ZERO school shootings that year (and that decade tbh), but I guess gun control doesn't work.
