The purpose of this study was to better understand the opinions and experiences of selected teachers regarding teacher bullying at Triton High School. The researcher surveyed teachers with instructional responsibilities. A total of 70 out of 100 teachers participated in the survey. Participants were administered a Likert-scale survey that measured teacher experience with bullying, interpersonal dynamics of bullying teachers, the causes of bullying, and personal experience of bullying. Surveys were statistically analyzed to determine frequencies, percentages, means, and standard deviations on the opinion factors.
The study provides insight on the opinions and experiences of teachers regarding teacher bullying. Teachers at Triton High School agreed that teacher bullying does exist. However, 94% of teachers indicated that they were unaware if the school has a written procedure for handling bullying teachers and 52% of teachers felt administrators were resistant to being told about bullying teachers.
