Ozdemir, Soner Mehmet
Journal of Instructional Psychology, v39 n1 p51-62 2012
This study seeks to investigate violence against teachers. A total of 902 teachers working at the elementary schools and at secondary schools located in the center of Kirikkale, Turkey were enrolled in the study. Data were gathered by an instrument designed by the researcher and aiming to measure violence against teachers. Analyses included descriptive statistics and the Chi-Square Test of Independence. The results of the study revealed that teachers often experienced emotional (24.1%), followed by verbal (14.7%), physical (6.3%) and sexual (4.6%) violence. The results also indicated that male teachers were exposed to physical violence while female teachers were mostly facing verbal and emotional violence. Besides, it has been found that secondary school teachers were experienced violence acts more than elementary school teachers do. (Contains 3 tables.)
