Abstract: Peer violence in school we face throughout the world is a big problem for both, the individual and the society. It affects students’ mental and emotional health and development. It can also have influence on students' academic achievement. Tippett and Wolke (2014) did a review of published literature on school bullying and SES and identified 28 studies that reported an association between roles in school bullying (victim, bully, and bully-victim) and measures of socio-economic status (SES). Providing a safe and stimulating learning environment is therefore one of important goals of education (for all SES groups) and that is why researching violence among students is needed. School violence is associated to many different factors. In this paper we focus on the relationship between SES and peer violence at school. The data used in this paper is collected from the International Civic and Citizenship Education Study from its 2016 cycle (IEA ICCS 2016). We will focus on eighth grade students from Slovenia. We will use regression analysis to test if students with lower SES are more frequently exposed to peer violence than ones with higher SES.
