De Wet, Corene
Perspectives in Education, v29 n4 p66-77 Dec 2011
In order to expand the body of knowledge on workplace bullying in South Africa the aim of this article is to report on findings from a narrative analysis. In this article the professional life stories of two teachers, who have been exposed to bullying by their principals over an extended period of time, are retold. The narratives describe how and why they were bullied and the impact of the bullying on their professional lives. By using narrative analysis this article gives a voice to victims of workplace bullying and creates an awareness of this scourge in an ever-changing South African education dispensation.
