“In this study was analyzed not only how children perceive the physical and verbal violence, but the opinion of teachers on this issue”, — added Mr. Polozhevets. Only 3% of teachers reported that students had informed them of the aggressive behavior from other students, which was not aimed at them. Aggression towards themselves students complain even fewer of them have mentioned only 1% of teachers.

According to 50% of the teachers, the aggressive attitude of adolescents is associated with a desire to increase your credibility in the eyes of their classmates. “50% faced bullying two or three times, and 6% of teachers are subjected to harassment on the part of the students regularly”, — said the head of the laboratory, NRU HSE Alexander Milkus.
The authors note that the financial situation of teachers due to the frequency of aggression on the part of his disciples: the teachers of severe hardship are subjected to bullying twice as often.
“We try to make the problem open to discussion, and to restart all educational space”, — said the Deputy Director of the Department of state policy in the sphere of protection of children’s rights Ministry of education and science Larisa Falkowski. She recalled the incident at school No. 5 in Ulan-Ude, which occurred on January 19, when the student attacked the students and teachers.

According to Larisa Falkowski, the teenager carried out the attack because of the bad ratings on the Russian language: “It is not supported by the family — the stepfather said it was a problem child with whom he needs to understand himself. So he figured I could.” “The issues of psychological support of teachers directly connected with the return in the training of future teachers of courses associated with teaching child psychology, issues psychology of development and conflict competence”, — said Mrs. Falkowski. She noted that to solve problems of aggression in schools the Ministry of education, in particular, discuss the possibility of amending the Federal state educational standards for the training of teachers.
