Abstract This study employed surveys to collect data from 50 teachers in 10 primary schools in Thailand about their concerns regarding challenging behaviour in the classroom and whether teachers' background variables such as gender, teacher's level of training and experience influenced their concerns about challenging behaviours. Descriptive statistics, t-tests, and ANOVA were used to analyse the data. The results showed that particular behaviours such as Inattention, Physical Aggression and Self-injury were of concern to teachers and suggest that cultural factors play some role in teachers' perceptions of student behaviour. Since such behaviours sometimes lead to exclusion from school, the implications of the findings for Thailand's education system are discussed.
