Abstract

Violence against teachers is a phenomenon of criminalization in the educational environment. School as a formal institution is a means for students to gain knowledge and shape the character of students, and teachers and students are an integral element in school. But the last few years there has been disharmonization between teachers and students or teachers and parents. Several cases of violence against teachers emerged. This study attempts to analyze factors causing violence against teachers and prevention efforts to prevent this violence against teachers from happening again. The research method used is in-depth interview, observation and focus group discussion. Participants of this study were Bandung city teachers from elementary, junior high, high school and vocational high schools. The results show that the causes of violence against teachers are due to communication errors and conceptual differences in enforcing rules. Rules that emphasize corporal punishment rather than persuasive and educational punishment are perceived as unacceptable violence by students and parents. Secondly, teachers do not understand their competencies, especially the personal, social and professional aspects that cause students to abuse teachers.
