English abstract
The purpose of this study was to highlight cyber-bullying and its place in today’s schools. Our aim was to research how schools with bullying prevention programs are equipped to handle and take action against cyber-bullying. Furthermore this study focuses on whether or not schools are responsible for cases of cyber-bullying. We also aimed to present teachers’ general views and knowledge regarding this phenomenon. In order to emphasize these issues we have asked the following questions: How do teachers’ perceive the existence of cyber-bullying in school? What do schools do to prevent and take action against cyber-bullying? Who is responsible for taking action against cyber-bullying? As a method to obtain answers to these questions we have used five qualitative interviews. Our informants were various educators involved with bullying prevention programs in their respective schools. Socio cultural, organisational and judicial perspectives support our theoretical framework. Our results show that although the schools in our study may be capable of dealing with traditional bullying, they are not suitably equipped to deal with cyber-bullying. In general the educators are in agreement that they are inadequately informed about cyber-bullying. All informants were prepared to further educate themselves in order to prevent and combat this new phenomenon. Finally in order for our schools to be able to act effectively on cyber-bullying there must be clear laws put in place.
