Saúde [online]. 2020, vol.29, n.1, e2019159.  Epub 17-Abr-2020. ISSN 2237-9622.  https://doi.org/10.5123/s1679-49742020000100022.

Objective:

to analyze prevalence of violence against high school teachers and associated factors in Teresina, Piauí, Brazil.

Methods:

this was a cross-sectional study using convenience sampling. Data was collected in 2016 in public and private high schools, using a self-administered questionnaire. Prevalence ratios (PR) using Poisson regression and 95% confidence intervals (95%CI) were calculated.

Results:

279 teachers participated, of whom 54.8% (95%CI 48.8;60.7) reported having suffered at least one type of violence. Verbal insults were most prevalent (39.4%; 95%CI 33.7;45.4), positively associated with public schools (PR=1.45; 95%CI 1.00;2.11) and with schools in the city’s Eastern region (PR=1.85; 95%CI 1.17;2.93) and Southern region (PR=1.59; 95%CI 1.05;2.41). Sexual harassment was associated with males (PR=2.38; 95%CI 2.02;2.71).

Conclusion:

violence against teachers was higher in public schools in poorer outskirt regions and regions with high indicators of urban violence.
