Abstract

Bullying is a serious concern in our schools. Some estimates suggest that a high proportion of U.S. children have been victimized by bullying, with much of the bullying occurring in schools. This article examines the particular issue of bullying of children by school personnel. Data were gathered from a sample of school personnel in three rural public schools located within the same school district. of the seventy school personnel who responded to the survey, twenty-five (36%) indicated they had observed other school personnel bullying students during the previous three-month period. The implications of bullying by school personnel are discussed, along with the implications for social work practice in the schools.
