The purpose of this study was to examine the perceptions of elementary school teachers about the extent of school violence in Hawai'i's public elementary schools. Teacher perceptions of violence were compared by gender, years of teaching experience, number of years at the present school, and level of school violence. This study also investigated the perceived existence of the five elements of safe schools across schools with low, moderate and high violence levels as determined by each school's suspension rates. Finally, this study examined the perceived responsibility of teachers for providing safe schools.SPSS Survival manual (2nd ed.) ... The Social Studies, 92(4), 167-175. ...
