Danger in the classroom?

4 posts in this topic

Violence against teachers is a more widespread problem than previously thought, according to an article recently published by the American Psychological Association (APA) in the journal American Psychologist.

National surveys of K-12 teachers suggest that up to 80 percent of teachers had been victimized by students in the then-current or prior year.

The most common offense against teachers is reportedly theft or property damage, followed by harassment. And 44 percent of teachers who reported victimization did so after physical attacks by students.

“Violence directed against teachers is a national crisis with far-reaching implications and deserves inclusion in the school-violence equation,” said Dorothy Espelage, professor of psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the lead author of the article.
