  • Bullying has been a topic of educational research within schools for many years (Olweus, 1978; Mah, Stewin & Mah, 2001). Yet, despite its focus within schools, little is known about this social problem as it relates to teacher bullying behaviors. The current study investigates the occurrence of teacher-to-student bullying from the perspective of the student. Three participants were recruited to examine their experiences as it relates to teacher bullying. Interview transcripts were analyzed pursuant to the tenets of Consensual Qualitative Research (CQR) and were coded to account for participant perceptions and their subsequent experiences of teacher bullying. Nine categories emerged encompassing 31 domains. Results are interpreted through several theoretical frameworks and implications for future teaching practice are briefly discussed.
