Studies show students are acting-out against teachers more often
A recent study shows that violence against teachers happens much more often than it may seem if you broaden the definition of violence. Eric Anderman, a professor at the Ohio State University.
Of those, 94 percent said they had been victimized by students - 44 percent reported being physically attacked and 72 percent reported harassment, while 50 percent said they experienced theft or property damage at school. The findings were based on survey responses from almost 3,000 K-12 teachers in 48 states.
The study, published by the American Psychological Association, says the violence affects students, teachers, and an entire community if it is not addressed.
