Bullying of Staff in Schools aims to assist school employees to understand the phenomenon of bullying of staff, its existence, the forms it takes, and the impacts on staff and their schools.

With foreword by General Peter Cosgrove, the intention of this book is to:

  • Reposition the debate on staff bullying in schools from the periphery to the centre of a growing national and international concern about workplace bullying
  • Eliminate staff bullying from schools
  • Provide a resource to which school employees may turn to in their efforts to meet and negate the negative impact of bullying of staff

Data from research studies involving over 2500 participants examine the phenomenon across 10 demographic classifications, details the human and economic costs, and provides helpful advice and recommendations to school employees and school leaders.
