......A lot of teachers show favoritism to students and vice versa. Favoritism is everywhere, especially in the workplace and school. Favoritism can be done consciously and unconsciously. When we pick people out of a crowd for a anything or when we pick groups for group projects, we often subconsciously pick people we like or favor over others. Teachers are affected by favoritism. They talk about things pertaining to their favorite students; they talk about the student’s performance in sports or another activity but push aside the breaking news that another student wants to talk about. Without knowing it, we have all started to rely on favoritism to get us through certain situations such as getting out of trouble. Some students know they are being favored and they take advantage of it and who is to blame them?
.....Society constantly teaches us favoritism. We are given surveys for various things multiple times a year. We are trained and taught to pick our favorites out of the choices given on those surveys so why would we not apply that to everyday life? Those favorite things and people stay in our heads and we unconsciously let them find a home to stay in in our heads. Though we may not know it, our subconscious makes a lot of decisions for us. When we hear a loud and dangerous commotion, our minds tell us to run from it, although we may choose not to. It is that little resistance that can make us stray from favoritism.
......We need to learn how to control our favoritism, whether we are teachers or students. We could make ourselves more aware to our actions by thinking more before acting. Instead of letting students pick their own groups all the time, teachers should have an organized way of grouping students. Teachers also should not give special privileges to specific students...


.........that's a part of a speech I had to give for english class. I was curious to kno about ur experiences with "favoritism" in the classroom. Where else, in school, do you guys find favortitism? how else does society teach us favoritism and how do u think we can stop it?

all my teachers have favourites, and sadley the ones they hate. Some teachers though try to give all students equality, but their only human.

yes, im on the hate list.
although teacher pets usually get bullied, so it works out well

favoritism in school = slipping in some "favors", aye?

I think the teacher forgot to teach you some...vocabulary? or spelling? Favouritism, please. For the faggots called Americans..."favoritism", anything sounds better than your favortitism...good god, is this actually a reference to Fav-O-titties?

Oh now, that's a whole new direction. I like the titties soft and not too small.

But yeah favoritism exists. My English teacher is exceptionally nice to me because she thinks I'm a Fob :\ Once I got a 60% on a vocab quiz because I never studied.. she came to talk to me about it, and was like "okay it's not your fault, you did a good job." And she didn't mark me off. pseudo-fobs have it made.

Well, he couldn't lobotomize the word favouritism any more than you could cripple a quadriplegic.

The topic of conversation has shifted.

Oh sorry, I thought you were talking about a mental illness where people see everything in form of tits.

100 times correct..and just one time..fail? Aww.

PS: Actually, the topic's not bad. It's one of the more intelligible ones. Pardon my sarcastic mind.

What's wrong with favouritism? If it gets me through a short period of my life I don't have a problem with it. My teacher favored me the most in 7th grade, mostly because I had better grades than most of the students and was respectable. Besides, I rather be with people I like than people I hate, but than again, life has a funny way of switching up on you.
