Bullying in Brazilian Schools and Restorative Practices
Grossi, Patricia Krieger; dos Santos, Andreia Mendes
Canadian Journal of Education, v35 n1 p120-136 2012
Bullying is a widespread phenomenon that affects many children and adolescents in Brazilian schools. A pilot research study was carried out in four schools (one private and three public) located in Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil. A combination of self-administered questionnaires and focus groups with students as well as interviews with teachers were undertaken to investigate the prevalence of bullying and how restorative practices can help to deal with conflict. Approximately 80% of the student participants in the study reported having experienced bullying in the school setting. Restorative practices implemented in these schools appear to contribute to the improvement of the school climate through reparative dialogue. (Contains 6 tables and 1 figure.)
