ABSTRACT
The purpose of this research was to study school violence and exclusion across different educational levels in the Madrid Region, Spain. Participants were 1,635 students (aged 14-18 years) with different education levels --compulsory secondary education, specific/initial training courses and vocational training. Students filled out a questionnaire that included measures of school satisfaction, type of violence (e.g., exclusion, verbal violence, physical violence, vandalism), violence roles (i.e., aggressors, victims and spectators), and attitudes towards violence (e.g., intolerance, sexism and violence justification). Results indicated that a) social exclusion and verbal violence are the most prevalent types of violence, b) school violence decreased when the educational level increased, and c) special vulnerability was higher among specific groups. Implications and interventions are discussed.
