School Teachers Bullied by Their Students: Teachers' Attributions and How They Share Their Experiences
Kauppi, Teemu; Porhola, Maili
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v28 n7 p1059-1068 Oct 2012
Previous studies suggest that many teachers worldwide are bullied by students. However, deeper understanding of teachers' bullying experiences; of their interpretations of the causes of bullying; and of how they cope with these experiences, is lacking. Using an Internet survey we examined the attributions made by Finnish elementary and lower secondary school teachers for their victimisation; the people with whom they share their experiences; and the links between these. Three kinds of attribution were identified: student-related, institution-related, and teacher-related. Selection of the persons with whom teachers shared their experiences was determined by the nature of the attributions given for victimisation. (Contains 4 tables.)
