In schools bullying is increasingly being recognised by educators as the significant problem that it is. Whilst adult-adult, and adult-child violence has been recognised and legislated against in our society for a number of years, the issue of child-child violence has not been seriously addressed. In this article consideration will be given to research literature, which highlights how the bully identifies certain learners as victims. The article goes on to describe research conducted at two primary schools in South Africa. The research was carried out by means of discussions and interviews conducted with learners, observation, document analysis, and focus group interviews with educators.
