Blurb/Shorttext:
The purpose of the research was to study teachers’ and administrators’ perceptions and attitudes towards the bullying problem, existing school policies and procedures, and in-service training needs in a cluster of Lebanese private schools. Survey methodology and the key informant approach were used. Data analysis involved the compilation of descriptive statistics and thematic analysis respectively. The data indicated that Lebanese teachers showed a high level of awareness of what behaviors constitute bullying. Most recognize the existence of a bullying problem in their school. Most schools did not have a specific bullying policy but did have policies addressing bullying-related issues. Regarding teachers’ and administrators’ views towards teachers’ responsibilities in dealing with the issue, nearly all agreed that teachers play a crucial role in bullying prevention and that they should intervene whenever they see bullying occurring. Teachers and administrators generally believed that they needed in-service training to deal with bullying. A series of recommendations is presented including a proposed outline for a professional development workshop on bullying.
