Abstract:

This study aimed to determine the teachers’ responses toward bullying in the public schools through the use of a survey questionnaire. Specifically, this study sought to answer the following questions: What are the teachers’ responses toward bullying in the public schools when taken as a whole and when classified according to their personal characteristics?; and Is there any significant difference in the teachers’ responses toward bullying when grouped according to their personal characteristics? Descriptive survey method was used in this study. Using the Slovin’s Formula, the 164 respondents were selected from grade I to VI teachers of District I-Iloilo City Proper, but the return of completed questionnaire was 136. The validated 30-item researcher-made questionnaire was used to gather data from the respondents. The data gathered were subjected to appropriate descriptive and inferential statistics. When teachers were taken as a whole and when grouped according to personal characteristics, the results revealed that the teachers often used emotional response while they always used verbal response. They rarely used ignoring response and physical response while sometimes used the psychological response. There was no significant difference in the ignoring, psychological, and emotional responses when classified according to their personal characteristics. There was a significant difference in the manner of verbal responses when teachers were grouped according to the years of teaching experience and physical responses when teachers were grouped according to their number of professional development seminars attended.
