Abstract

IN ENGLISH: This chapter presents research which explores if high-school students, who have felt same-sex attraction and those who have not, differ in their experiences of violence in schools and in perceived support from their teachers. It also encourages new perspectives on how schools can transform into safe spaces for LGBTQ+ students to support their positive school experiences. Research about same-sex sexual attraction, perceived teacher support and experiences of relational and physical violence was conducted using a questionnaire. The sample comprised 1819 high-school students from western Croatia. The results showed that students, and especially boys, who felt same-sex attraction very often, experienced both physical and relational violence more than students who never, rarely or often experienced same-sex attraction. In addition, both boys and girls who experienced same-sex attractions very often reported to have received less teachers’ support than other students. These findings point out that same-sex attracted students, who need teachers’ support due to violence experienced in schools, are the ones who receive it less. Implementation of comprehensive school bullying prevention policies addressing LGBT issues are recommended in order to ensure that schools in Croatia and throughout Europe provide a safe and supportive environment for all their students. --------------- IN CROATIAN: U ovom poglavlju predstavljeno je istraživanje koje ispituje razlikuju li se učenici koji su doživjeli privlačnost prema osobi istog spola, i oni koji to nisu doživjeli, u iskustvima doživljenog nasilja u školi i u percipiranoj podršci svojih nastavnika. Ovaj rad također podupire novu perspektivu i pristupe kojima se škole mogu transformirati u mjesta koja su sigurna za LGBTQ+ učenike i koja podržavaju njihova pozitivna školska iskustva. Istraživanje je provedeno na 1819 srednjoškolaca iz zapadne Hrvatske. Upitnikom su ispitani: istospolna privlačnost, doživljeno fizičko i relacijsko nasilje u školi, te percipirana podrška nastavnika. Rezultati su pokazali da su učenici, a posebno mladići, koji su istospolnu privlačnost osjećali vrlo često, doživjeli više fizičkog i relacijskog nasilja od učenika koji su istospolnu privlačnost doživjeli često, rijetko ili nikada. Osim toga, mladići i djevojke koji su istospolnu privlačnost osjećali vrlo često, također su izvijestili da su dobili manje nastavničke podrške u usporedbi s ostalim učenicima. Ovi nalazi ukazuju na činjenicu da učenici koji osjećaju istospolnu privlačnost, te koji trebaju nastavničku podršku zbog doživljenog nasilja u školi, zapravo dobivaju manje takve podrške. Preporučuje se provedba sveobuhvatnih politika prevencije vršnjačkog nasilja u školama s fokusom na LGBT problematiku, kako bi škole u Hrvatskoj i širom Europe bile sigurno i podržavajuće okruženje za sve svoje učenike.
