Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the Sports and Physical Education teachers’ perceptions of student bullying in the city of Trabzon, Turkey. The study also attempted to investigate the role of “school atmosphere”, “gender” and “role model” factors on student bullying in school environments. The study was carried out in the first semester of the 2007-2008 academic year with the participation of ten Sports and PE teachers working in various high schools in Trabzon. The study employed a qualitative approach and case study method. A semi-structured interview was administered as the data collection instrument. In data analysis, “constant comparison method” was used. The study found that there was no agreement among teachers on the role of school atmosphere and on their role models in bullying, and that their perceptions of bullying were problematic. Another finding was that the teachers believed male students were more involved in peer bullying.
