Violence in Schools

Project Outline:

The issue of violence in schools has been raised in the press over a number of years with the prevalence of violence appearing to be increasing across all ages of schooling.
This research area includes violence against teachers by both students and parents. Violence against other school staff, and violence between students both on school grounds and online.
The extensive aspects of the issue enable prospective HDR candidates to choose an area of particular interest.
The current WA Government response is to suspend or expel students who are involved in violence and this strategy has been questioned (Armstrong, 2018) (
