Yavuzer, Yasemin; Gundogdu, Rezzan; Dikici, Ayhan
Journal of School Violence, v8 n1 p29-41 2009
The aim of this study is to determine the types and frequencies of violence encountered by teachers in primary and high schools in Nide province in Turkey, and, in addition, to determine the perceptions of teachers regarding the reasons for and methods of prevention of violent actions at schools. One hundred forty-two teachers were chosen for this research out of 3,397 teachers in Nide by rational sampling. Data was gathered through public surveys. The frequency distribution used for analysis of data was determined separately as a percentage in a chart. Teachers defined violence as "whole verbal or physical harming behavior." They considered family reasons to be the main reason for violence at schools and suggest that more effective student advising services and disciplinary regulations be performed as prevention.
