Teacher and Student Perceptions of Bullying at Leclaire School
by Smith, Cornelia A., Ed.D., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2014, 68; 3629261
Abstract (Summary)

This study was designed to find out perceptions of staff and second grade students about bullying at Leclaire Elementary School. The results of this study yielded four main themes: 1) Staff and students perceive that bullying does indeed exist, but is not a big problem. 2) Educating others about bullying is important. 3) Teachers believe that there are factors in the home and school settings that can contribute to bullying. 4) Staff and students believe that the existing school climate is positive. One implication of the study for Leclaire School is that additional training about bullying should be provided to all constituents: parents, students and staff members.
