The Abusive School Principal: A South African Case Study
de Wet, Corene
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (11th, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, May 14-17, 2013)
Since the 1990s there has been increased public interest, debate and research on workplace bullying. Little research has, however, been done on the abuse of educators or on the bullies per se. The aim of this paper is to expand the body of knowledge on workplace bullying by shedding light on the character of a bullying school principal. In 2008 I conducted in-depth interviews with educators who were the victims of bullying. A content analysis of the verbatim responses of three educators who worked at the same school revealed that their bully was an envious, destructive narcissistic, evil and unsupportive school principal, who relentlessly victimised them for nearly two decades.
