Nepotism and Favoritism are not the new words for us. It has turned into a virus that exists everywhere. It simply means preferring someone based on personal liking and disliking, which nowadays is spreading like a plague. It prevails even in educational institutions where students being in good books of teachers obtain good grades in exams.

Unfortunately, the copy culture in our institutions is rampant despite tall claims of eradicating or controlling the copy culture which has become a curse. In such a system the students find easy way to pass the exams with good numbers instead of believing that their hard work will pay off.

Being integral part of this corrupt system, the teachers also get involved in nepotism and favor the students on the basis of their areas, their family or blood relationship. I have observed that the favoritism can be found in any institutions whether it is nursery, secondary or the intermediate level or even the university. The nepotism or favoritism ultimately leaves a negative impact on students because it does not create mutual trust and understanding between teacher and students.

The students consider teacher as their role model but if their role models start suppressing them and extend favor to the students who even don’t attend classes, it will leave a negative impression on the students about the personality of the teacher.

It’s very essential for the government, policy-makers, heads of institution etc. to focus on these issues and ensure that our institutions maintain equality among the students in terms of their education, particularly with regard to marking because otherwise such practices will bear worst effects in future. Not only the teachers will lose respect and esteem but the entire education system will be destroyed due to favoritism.

In such an atmosphere the affected students would be agitating when they don’t find a suitable environment where they can explore their hidden talent. Once again, I will request the teachers also to treat the students equally.
