Unacceptable "but" Tolerated Behavior
Jefferson, Anne L.
Educational Considerations, v35 n2 p50-52 Spr 2008
Bullying is not acceptable in a civilized society, and, increasingly, it is recognized as a punishable act. However, the seriousness of bullying is often addressed differently across types of educational organizations. In this article, the author examines the issue of administrative bullying oftentimes referred to as workplace bullying. Although there seems to be a common understanding of the harm caused by student bullying across school systems and higher institutions and the need for institutional protections and actions, there is a noticeable absence of similar policies and procedures when the alleged bully is a higher education administrator. (Contains 16 endnotes.)
