A new study out this morning might make parents uneasy. Researchers say more than 90,000 children a year land in the emergency room because they were attacked at school.
    
The study from Brown University was based on emergency room reports from 2001 through 2008, that include information like type of injury and  whether it happened at school.

Researchers found one in ten injuries that happened at school were quote "intentional." That means the injuries were not caused by sports or simply tripping and falling. Researchers say schools should increase the monitoring of students for any kind of injury.
