Exchange student safety

This article says America is not doing enough to protect visiting high school exchange students. It got me thinking about the safety of exchange students. I’m curious how many American high school students ever go abroad to study in a foreign country and how safe they are when they do. And while college students should be better equipped to live on their own, how safe are they when they do semester abroad programs and such?

And a similar question for my non-American readers – would you or did you send your kids to study in America. What, if anything, worried you when you did?
