Agnes S Reyes

Abstract


ABSTRACT: Bullying is a major issue in today’s world and is getting increasing attention in the research literature. The school safety, including the prevention of bullying, is a top priority and a key area of academic research. This study endeavors to describe and analyze the bullying experiences of the indigenous people students of PNU (Philippine Normal University)-North Luzon, and to determine their social impact. A descriptive qualitative research was employed. Respondents were determined through the help of the adviser with small group interviews, planned and unplanned, and one on one basis were conducted. Issues on students’ experiences that were positively solved were presented to set the mood of the interview and to elicit very personal data from the respondents. The findings show that the forms of bullying experienced by the IP (Indigenous People) students of PNU-North Luzon Campus, namely: indirect bullying, verbal bullying, psychological bullying, and institutional bullying. The recommendations are the school should create a system wide policy on standardized labeling of sections of the students in the different year levels, not according to particular group of people; and Educational Community should be culture sensitive to any school endeavor.

KEY WORD: Bullying; Indigenous People Student; Experience; School Policy.
