Badia Martín, M. del M. (2011). Conflict and violence in Spanish schools. Waikato Journal of Education, 16(1). https://doi.org/10.15663/wje.v16i1.77


The aim of this work is to obtain a description of different research about classroom misbehaviour and evaluate to what extent the beliefs guide the decisions in the educational context, and a description of the main results of research on discipline and school violence. Spain was chosen for this purpose since diverse professionals were interested in discipline in schools.

The studies proposed by different researchers will help us to approach this phenomenon. There are several interesting issues that are to be addressed: school life, neglect of parents in their duties, the relationship between two concepts as conflict and violence, the circumstances and personal characteristics and guidelines for developing a disciplinary education programme.
