DESCRIPTION OF CONTENTS:

This report deals with identify the point school violence is in our country. We attempted identify the perception of the problem with those who witness acts of school violence, those who suffer and those who perpetrate it. We applied a questionnaire with three different sections: witnesses, victims and bullies. This approach to the problem maded possible interesting comparisons between different perceptions.

REVIEWER’S COMMENTS ON THE DOCUMENT:

This report is particularly noteworthy for providing interesting results in terms of two aspects. First, it seems that is not as widespread as is thought the called "law of silence”. Neither the witnesses nor the victims remain mostly dumb before the school violence. Witnesses often intervene and tell teachers and especially the victims, although mostly tend to endure the situation, they often tell the teachers. Secondly, the school bullies do not usually see themselves as aggressors, but as defense against aggression or provocation of their victims. In this way self-righteous. Therefore, it is desirable to receive psychological care really need.
