There are contradictory views related to this statement, on the one hand Olweus (1993) defends that usually teachers have negative attitudes towards bullying-victims. Furthermore, Nesdale (2006) supports that teachers responses can be influenced by the aggressors’ goodness and popularity. On the other hand, Boulton (1997) authors state that teachers have generally negative attitudes towards bullying and bullies, and are generally sympathetic towards victims.
