The purpose of the study was, first, to document the prevalence of Study Bullying of Teachers (SBT) in the
state of California. Second, the study investigated if the experience of SBT predicted an increase in burnout
among teachers. This study utilized the Copenhagen Burnout Inventory (CBI), a burnout scale with three
dimensions (i.e., personal, work-related, and client-related). The study also used an SBT survey, which is a
self-constructed survey based on previous studies. The SBT survey asked participants about their experience
of SBT and how they reacted to being bullied. A total of 268 public school teachers in California
participated in the study. The study found an 85.1% prevalence rate of SBT. Findings showed an increase in
SBT predicted an increase in burnout across all three dimensions after controlling for the experiencing of
being bullied by parents. The findings indicated verbal abuse and damaging teachers’ property had the most
substantial effect on burnout. The results also showed in-person bullying predicted the increase in burnout
but not online bullying.
