Bullying and Victimisation in the Primary School System: Examining the Gender Differential

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The findings from a baseline survey of 589 students, ages 8-12 years old, from thirteen (13) primary schools in the Caribbean state of Trinidad and Tobago will be highlighted in this paper. Gender, ethnic and social class relationships will be examined. Special emphasis will be placed on the gender differential as it relates to the types and frequency of victimization, bullying and juvenile delinquency committed by the male and female students surveyed. It was found, for example, that bullying has an age differential and that a higher proportion of female students commit certain types of bullying, and that the females are closing the gap with regard to involvement in deviant activity in schools when compared with the male students. The data will be also be discussed in the context of furthering a social psychological theoretical framework, cross cultural/international comparisons and policy interventions in reducing school victimization and bullying. Recommendations for reducing student risk and school victimization and bullying will be submitted.
