Bullying in Irish Education
Mona O'Moore is Fellow Emeritus of Trinity College Dublin and Adjunct Professor at Dublin City University. She is also the Founding Director of the Anti-Bullying Centre at Trinity College and Dublin City University. Paul Stevens has worked in a variety of roles in the education sector and his most recent research focuses on workplace bullying in over 700 primary schools.
School bullying is receiving increasing attention as a phenomenon which is present in all schools.
Despite previous books on the topic, bullying continues to thrive, becoming more sophisticated and poses serious problems for school populations in both primary and post-primary sectors.
This book is the first definitive review of bullying in Irish education written by researchers and practitioners working in the field. The appeal of this book is twofold.
Firstly, it explores bullying from different perspectives within education namely, pupils, teachers and principals.
Secondly, it is research based, but the concerns, shortcomings and challenges which bullying presents in the educational environment are explored and realistic strategies and support strategies are proposed.
Given the keen interest in bullying internationally this book provides a comparative text on the latest research and practice of bullying in Irish education.
