New Zealand: 94 per cent of teachers have seen school bullying | Scoop.co.nz

New Zealand: 94 per cent of teachers have seen school bullying | Scoop.co.nz | Online & School Bullying | Scoop.it

In the first New Zealand study of its kind, a Victoria University researcher has found that 94 percent of the school staff she surveyed have seen bullying in their school.

 

Dr Vanessa Green, Head of Victoria’s School of Educational Psychology and Pedagogy, along with a team of postgraduate students, surveyed 860 teachers and senior staff from primary, intermediate and secondary schools around New Zealand about their experiences with, perceptions of, and attitudes towards bullying.

 

“The majority of teachers and senior school management personnel are concerned, and there is a general feeling that we need to do something about it,” says Dr Green.

 

Nearly half of those who took part in the survey said instances of verbal bullying were being brought to their attention weekly.

 

Other findings were that 68 per cent of respondents believe bullying begins between the preschool years and the ages of seven or eight, while just under half the respondents say that cyberbullying is mainly conducted by 11 to 14 year olds.

 

Dr Green says the study shows that bullying is a national problem that must be addressed.

 

“The internet has made bullying a more complex issue than it was 20 years ago and, as a result, it requires a more sophisticated response. The old methods may not be as effective as they were. We need to be thinking in a more creative way about how to address bullying,” she says.
