Bullying Behavior: What Is the Potential for Violence at Your School?
Bulach, Clete; Fulbright, Julie Penland; Williams, Ronnie
Research was undertaken to design an instrument that could identify schools prone to the occurrence of violence. A secondary purpose was to identify signs that might indicate that violence was a likely occurrence. The instrument had five factors that described where bullying occurred; the types and reasons for bullying; how students were treated; ways students reported bullying; and their feelings of self-efficacy. Based on the results, school officials concluded that bully behavior was not a serious problem in their school. The instrument did reflect that bullying occurred and determined what behaviors were potential problems. It cautions school officials from relying on survey data alone in dealing with bullying behavior. Included is a list from the Department of Education on early warning signs that student violence could occur. Appendix A lists Factors and Corresponding Behaviors. (Contains 11 references.) (JDM)
