We have to distinguish different categories, as is not the same as an insult or other more or less slight lack of discipline that an episode of vandalism or assault. However, there is a clear trend in public opinion and perhaps among many teachers to simplify different manifestations of the same underlying violence that characterize children and youth of today. Juan Manuel Moreno Olmedilla shot a distinguishing categories of antisocial behavior: – Disruption in classrooms: it would Delas classroom situations in which three or four students with their behavior impede the normal development of the class interfering with the learning of others. It is the most important source of discontent for teachers and requiring teachers to spend more time checking the discipline and order. – Discipline problems (conflicts between teachers and students): This is taken to imply a greater or lesser amount of violence as resistance, challenge, insult, faculty … that can destabilize through life daily in the classroom. – Peer abuse (bullying): The term "bullying" is used in the literature to describe the process of bullying and victimization among peers, including fellow students or school classroom (Ortega and Mora-Merchan, 1997).
Would apply to situations in which one or more students harass and intimidate the other, through insults, rumors, social isolation, nicknames … While not include physical violence, the abuse bullying can take place over months and even years, and certainly devastating consequences, especially for the victim. – Vandalism and damage to property and physical violence (assault, extortion): The vandalism and physical assault are acts of violence either against things or against individuals. They have the most impact on school communities and the public. – Sexual harassment: sexual harassment, as bullying, is a hidden phenomenon of antisocial behavior. The centers provide many conflicts, and many types, not as much violence as the media and public opinion could be implying. Ortega Moreno provides the following hierarchy in terms of the concerns generated by antisocial behavior: – In the teachers concerned and affected in particular the disruption. – For parents: indiscipline. – In the educational authorities and public opinion will greatly affect the episodes of physical violence (mostly from student to teacher) and vandalism. – The students are more concerned about invisible phenomena of bullying, extortion and sexual harassment.
