The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between how a teacher evaluates a potential case of child abuse and the teacher perception of stress within the school. Subjects were 399 teachers, 154 of them junior high school teachers. Subjects completed a survey about suspected child abuse cases, stress within the school, and other questions. We found that over 60% of teachers did not suspect child abuse in their class. 93% of respondents indicated hesitance rather than intervene with a student family. Factor analysis on perception of child abuse and the perceived stress in school revealed three factors loading on the child, two factors loading on the parents and six factors loading on teacher stress. Our results suggest that teachers experiencing stress may perceive more cases of child abuse than teachers experiencing less stress.Also, we found that junior high school teachers experiencing higher levels of stress perceived potential abuse as a problem of the family.
