Student – teacher violence

Forms of violence by students against teachers vary from behavior inconsistent with school rules and student status severe forms of physical violence or falling under the law: lack of involvement and participation in school activities (school absenteeism, run classes, indiscipline in the classroom or recess, ignoring messages sent by teachers – ignoring the requests that come from them), which are recognized by all actors investigated schools as the most common – 80% of cases; behaviors involving verbal and nonverbal aggression medium intensity and is an offense to the status and authority of the teacher (school refusal tasks, ironic attitude towards teachers, irony is a way of expression entitled to freedom of students to teachers in certain school who really deserve it; obvious violent behavior involving verbal and physical aggression towards the teacher (or sight threatening gestures, insults and offenses, assault and physical aggression, indirect aggression on the machine or other property of teachers, most of the counselors investigated schools said they had counseled students with this kind of behavior towards teachers).

We can say that there are inter-individual differences among pupils enrolled in a school in the adoption of violent behavior caused by a number of factors including psychosocial traits that make up personality. As a result, the analysis of violent behavior of students is important to take into account their individual psychological traits (impulsiveness, lack of control, weak capacity or lack of empathy, valuing violence). Therefore, we believe that the investigation of violent student’s personality and knowledge leads to the development of factors that may help to develop effective strategies to prevent school violence beyond socio-familial and social ones.
