Abstract

Schools in the Republic of Macedonia are less safe, this is witnessed by several murders that occurred in recent years. The problem of safety in secondary schools in Macedonia, and the development of safety culture in them, haven’t been recognized and have never been examined practically and theoretically. The purpose of this paper is to present research results and to provide models for preventive action and combat against violence in schools. The research was conducted on a representative sample questionnaire of 549 students in all secondary schools in Skopje, as well as to teachers and managerial personnel who gave their views on the seriousness of the situation about the security threats in schools and emergent forms of violence among young people. Results of the survey confirmed the general hypothesis that in secondary schools in Skopje there are potential dangers that represent safety risks of social psychological nature for students. The students also have a problem with their ethnic backgrounds, which can produce different security problems. In this study models for preventive actions will be proposed such as preventive psychosocial programs in schools which aim is to develop self-awareness, self-understanding, develop positive values, thus contributing to the development of emotional intelligence and controlling emotions, especially aggressiveness, which is a key factor for school violence. Key words: school violence, prevention, security risks, ethnic backgrounds, e.t.c.
