Abstract

This empirical Israeli study compared the explanatory capabilities of three interpretations for school violence: (a) violence as an input of the wider society to the school system; (b) violence at school as a response to frustration and alienation; and (c) school violence as a consequence of already existing violence at school. It appears that violence in Israel's schools is mainly a result of exposure to violent behaviour either at school, or in the general society. Frustration and alienation and expression of youth subculture seem to have very little effect.
