The research "Homophobic bullying in Tuscan schools: an empiric study on teachers’ evaluation" explored how teachers evaluate homophobic bullying at school, in terms of observed frequency of homophobic behaviours; strategies to tackle this phenomenon and influence of homophobic attitudes. 142 teachers completed a self-administered questionnaire consisting of three tools: The Homophobic Teacher Bullying Questionnaire; Handling Bullying Questionnaire, and Modern Homophobia Scale. The teachers report episodes of verbal homophobic bullying and rarely to the physical one, more in relation gay rather than lesbian persons. Teachers in primary school tend to use as a major strategy to punish bullies, while secondary school teachers tend to communicate with the bully. Moreover, having less homophobic attitudes is linked to a greater use of the strategy of "Working with the victim" and in the case of homophobic physical bullying also of "Working with the bully". There were no significant correlations between having homophobic attitudes and the observed frequency of homophobic bullying behaviour.
