Emotional Abuse from Teachers

by: Ettina

This survey is for a book I'm writing called School Trauma, about emotional abuse from teachers (especially as it affects minority children). Please fill out this survey regarding your experiences. It's adapted from the questionnaire in the introduction to the book If You Had Controlling Parents. If you have any comments or suggestions, especially regarding things I may have left out, please let me know at abnormaldiversity@yahoo.com
