Picture of the productBullied Teacher: Bullied Student: How to Recognize the Bully
Bullied Teacher: Bullied Student: How to Recognize the Bullying Culture in Your School and What to Do About It

Author - Les Parsons

Students aren’t the only ones bullying in schools. Teachers, principals and parents bully too. Together they create a bullying culture that strikes at the heart of effective learning and teaching. A bullying culture harms everyone: targets, student bystanders, teachers, parents and even society at large.

To eradicate bullying, the school community must first acknowledge its existence in all forms. This timely book explores the background and issues related not just to student-on-student bullying but to all forms of bullying found in too many schools. It then goes on to illustrate how schools can devise – and enforce – a policy that works.

This indispensible guide offers an anti-bullying blueprint that explains how to:

recognise a systemic culture of bullying
neutralise the power imbalance that enables bullies
create an environment free of sexual, racial and cultural stereotyping
use cooperative learning to foster respect for differences
empower students through positive reinforcement
counteract the “blame the victim” mentality

Every school should be a place where students and the whole school community feel physically and emotionally safe and secure. Any form to bullying – by students, parents, teachers or administrators – threatens to undermine that sense of security and impede learning. Bullied Teacher: Bullied Student suggests constructive ways the education community can handle all forms of bullying and helps educators implement innovative ways to heal a bullying school.

Picture of the productCare in Education
Care in Education: Teaching with Understanding and Compassion, 1st Edition

by Sandra Wilde

This philosophical commentary explores the meaning and significance of care in education, demonstrating how teaching with care enriches the art and soul of pedagogy. Wilde draws upon Western and Eastern philosophies that envision an integrated image of care to illuminate the value of cultivating understanding in the form of awareness, and compassion leading to right action. Comments and stories from teachers’ experiences demonstrate important aspects of care that are easily overlooked, such as present attention, listening and teacher, well-being. Although it uncovers a tragic conflict between caring and aspects of contemporary schooling, this book offers hope for teachers. It shares a vision of practice that has the potential to re-enliven and strengthen care even in the midst of these difficulties. It also offers a contemplative approach to pedagogy that calls educators into intentional action, showing them how to renew their deep ethical connections to students, to subject matter and to the world.

1. Introduction 2. The Loss of Care 3. The Link Between Care and Understanding 4. Listening Deeply: A Practical Wisdom 5. Being Authentic 6. Contemplative Discipline: Self Care That Sustains Good Work 7. The Way of the Heart
