|Abstract:||In the final paper, we will get to know the theoretical and research aspect of peer violence. Violence in schools is influenced by various factors (economic status, social status, appearance, etc.).
There are many types and forms of violence in schools. In addition to peer violence, we also detect student violence against teachers, which is a fairly common phenomenon (various nicknames for teachers, disruption of lessons, etc.). The most common types of peer violence include physical or verbal violence, psychological violence, economic violence, racist and sexual violence, and the relatively new and widespread online violence, which experts say is just an extension of school violence.
We recognize children who are victims of violence mainly by their fear. They become victims mainly because they are isolated and lonely, and react to violence by crying. The bully, on the other hand, is a student who is the exact opposite of the victim; he/she looks stronger and confident, and has many friends. Observers are also a key element in violence, as they are often the ones who further promote violence.
The cause of violence is in most cases the result of a disorderly domestic environment or personal problems (domestic violence). To prevent violence, the school must be professional and must approach the child in case of problems; even when it comes to sanctioning the perpetrators, the school must adhere to certain rules and protocols.
There are many non-profit and non-governmental organizations working in the field of prevention and education of children about violence, which emphasize that violence is not a solution but a problem that needs to be solved.
Through the analysis, however, it has been found that more violence is present in urban schools and that boys are prone to physical violence, whereas girls are prone to psychological violence. It has been noticed that most violence occurs in school hallways or stairwells. Victims most often report being the target of violent students to their friends or other school staff. Based on the analysis, it can be confirmed that teachers are doing a good job on violence prevention.|
