Defining Disrespect: A Rural Teacher's Perspective
Landers, Eric; Servilio, Kathryn L.; Alter, Peter; Haydon, Todd
Rural Special Education Quarterly, v30 n2 p13-18 Jun 2011
Disrespect is an ambiguous term that has been shown to be predictive of emotional exhaustion and burnout of teachers. This study examined 120 rural teachers' definition of disrespect. Seventeen different definitions of disrespect emerged from the data. Implications of identifying these definitions are discussed as well as how researchers can continue to support teachers to effectively addressing these behaviors.
