The study analyzes the relationship between teacher-student mistreatment, school climate, teacher's social support and harassment among students. 1,577 students participated on it (800 boys and 777 girls), with an average age of 12.94 years (SD = 1.77 years), they belonged to 64 junior high schools in Sonora, Mexico. A structural equations model is calculated with AMOS support. From the results, it is inferred that teacher mistreatment directly and indirectly favors, through its negative effects on the climate and school support, peer violence. It is concluded that the mistreatment of teachers negatively affects the dynamics of schools and favors school bullying. Finally, the results and their possible theoretical and practical implications of the findings are discussed.
