Truthful Classroom: ‘Classroom Capital’ – Because teachers have favourites

Key idea – I don’t think that children are the passive recipients of their teachers’ favouritisms any more than they are passive recipients of the teachers’ lessons. Children can be actively involved in the pursuit of their own self-favouritism

Reading @sparklyfran ‘s sweet and authentic blog titled ‘A Labour of Love: My Favourite Pupil’, seeing how she wrote about Raj left me thinking about favourites. Right from the offset on this topic, there is a slight unease. You can feel as though you’re about to wade into a moral quagmire. I get the feeling this is some guilt-overspill from the misguided and unrealistic perception that good teachers are those who remain completely neutral, in order to be professional.
