But teachers are afraid to take action for fear of false allegations made against them.Commenting on the rising number of children verbally abusing teachers, Chris Keates, general secretary of the NASUWT: "Verbal abuse has always been classified as part of low level disruption issues, but a rise in levels is linked the more frustration and dissatisfaction of pupils.The false accusation of one child, who was in an abusive home situation, wrecked our family life.” Teachers aren't just the victims of verbal abuse.According to figures, 73 per cent think there is a widespread behaviour problem in school, which represents a 5 percent rise from the previous year.Bullying is the act of one person using strength or status to infringe on another person, whether with insults, threats, physical harm, ostracism, or infringing on their boundaries in any way that is not sexually charged.(To clarify, some see sexual harassment as a subset of bullying, but others see them as separate categories.) Although much bullying is peer-to-peer, bullying can be inflicted by an older person on a younger person or vice versa.Eight in ten teachers said they have suffered verbal abuse by a student in the last 12 months, an increase of 30 per cent from a year earlier.And nearly four in ten said the abuse came from parents.
As soon as pupils abuse teachers verbally, they should be summing the parents to the school and make clear to them it could lead to permanent exclusion.
