Texas Middle School Principals' Perceptions of Bullying on Campus
Harris, Sandra; Hathorn, Conley
NASSP Bulletin, v90 n1 p49-69 2006
Most bullying data to date have been gathered through student reports. This study surveyed 59 middle school principals to better understand their perceptions of bullying on their campus. The study found that compared to students, principals have a different awareness of bullying. In addition, nearly all of the principals considered the school very safe and felt that they were highly supportive of reducing bullying. This is not in agreement with other research that has found that students do not always consider their schools safe, nor do students view administration as supportive of reducing bullying.
