Many variables are involved in children?s aggressive and violent behavior: the family, personal aspects, school-related and social aspects, etc. The aim of this study is to determine stu-dents? opinion about the variables related to violent behavior at school. For this purpose, we used a sample comprising a total of 1214 students, between 12 and 16 years of age, from ten schools of the province of Almer?a (Spain). The results show that students grant more importance to variables related to the social context in the origin of school vio-lence; more specifially, variables considered to have the most inflence were substance consumption as well as belonging to a conflctive peer group.
School violence, secondary education, bullying.
