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, become more sophisticated and pose serious problems for school populations in both primary and post-primary sectors. This book will be 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 clearing indicating research and practice in Ireland.
Mona O'Moore is associate professor education at Trinity College Dublin and is the founder and academic director of the Anti Bullying Centre at TCD. Paul Stevens has undertaken nationwide research into bullying of over 700 primary principals in conjunction with the Irish Primary Principals' Network.
