Final View of Favoritism
Steps to change:
Effects Of Favoritism
Favoritism is a negative action. It causes the classroom to be an unhappy environment and often hinders the effectiveness of the teacher. Favoritism can be decreased but probably never completely gone. Everyone in the school system should know the negative effects of favoritism and work to remove this negative action before it becomes a problem.
~Change the leadership when it becomes a major problem
~ Set goals to have honest measures, honest assessments, and fair opportunities to perform
~ Have classroom management plan and use it for all students
~ Cultivate a positive environment and share smiles and kindness to every student
~ Students should reject receiving favoritism when they notice it and work hard not to entice teachers
