The aim of this study was to investigate the connection between bullying and the students’ perception of the level that this negative habit is present in schools, and also the teachers’ reaction to this phenomenon, whether they take certain steps to prevent it or they are indifferent to it. Currently 140 students in three primary schools (Naim Frashëri, Cyril and Methodius, Istikbal) in Tetovo were asked if they were bullies or victims using the Illinois Bully Scale as a questionnaire. Moreover, 46 teachers participated in the sample of our research. They responded on how they would react to bullying. For this, we used The Handling Bullying Questionnaire (HBQ). The data gathered from the surveys and interviews revealed that bullying is not in fact present in schools of this study. Furthermore, 80% of students said that they neither were bullied nor bullies. The 11% of the sample shows only once or two times of bullying experience, the other 3% three or four times, and just 2% five or six times, and 4% more than seven times of being bullied. The results from The Handling Bullying Questionnaire shows that 60% of teachers in our sample of study affirmed that they would definitely do something to prevent bullying in schools, 8% probably would attempt to do something, and 22% of them are unsure what they will or have to do. Just 5% probably would not do anything, and the other 5% perhaps will do nothing.
