Bullying and teachers

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingEncyclopædiartikelForskningpeer review

Approximately 10-12 % of 11-year old children across 42 countries reported being bullied at school at least two or three times a month in the past couple of months in the latest Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children (HBSC) Study, which was released 2016. Teachers and their role in bullying practices among children is conceptualized in different ways depending on the bullying understanding being used. In contexts where bullying is understood as an effect of individualistic traits and behavior, teachers are directed to take the responsibility to determine whether or not the reported or observed events should be defined as bullying and in case which sanctions respectively support the bully and the bullied should meet. In contexts where bullying is understood as an effect of complex interactions and of social structures in schools and institutions, teachers’ responsibility is rather directed towards an analyses of and transformative engaging with the complex social processes in which the bullying practices are entangled.
