Abstract

This study aimed to explore teacher favoritism's impact on students' learning outcomes at university level. Favoritism is a common trend in classrooms as teachers give special treatment to a few students despite not providing their best work, instead because of other reasons, like the personal preferences and liking/disliking. This research focuses on how students think about teacher-student favoritism and how it impacts students' learning outcomes. To answer these questions positivism paradigm was adhered to. The research followed a quantitative approach, and the survey method was considered best suited for this study. Population of this study consisted of all public sector universities of Lahore. The sample was collected from five general category public sector universities of Lahore. The descriptive and inferential statistics were used to conclude. Therefore, it was found that favoritism significantly impacts student learning outcomes at the university level. It causes insecurity, dissatisfaction, conflicts, and revengeful emotions among students, that directly affect their learning of students. Favoritism also causes less self-confidence in students. Favoritism impacts classroom environment, which is directly related to lousy learning outcomes.
