Abstract

There is limited qualitative research evaluating principals? understanding of bullying in urban elementary schools. The purpose of this exploratory study is to fill some of the gaps in the literature surrounding principals and physical and emotional bullying. This study will examine the principal?s understanding of bullying at the elementary school level, including how they define bullying, the key signs of bullying, and how they manage bullying. This study will seek to clarify principals? knowledge of bullying prevention policies and programs and capture principals? leadership skills surrounding bullying by addressing the issue of bullying from a transformational leadership perspective.
