  Case: Ice coffee
There is one student in your class who is wonderful. She does everything you ask and more. She is brilliant in class and very helpful. So most more you stop to get ice coffee and decide to bring this student some as well. She comes to your class early in the morning and you think most students don't recognize the frozen treat. Well one day your principal comes to speak to you about a complaint another parent complained that you were showing favoritism to one student in the class. What should be the consequences for the teacher, if any?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
I do not feel that this is that serious, obviously it shows favoritism but it is not like anyone was harmed. I do not feel like the teacher should get in trouble, the principles should just let her know that it is not okay. If this happens again then yes, I do feel like the teacher should be written up.

Comments: I agree and would do the same. I don't feel it is serious enough to punish the teacher. The principal should just inform the teacher that it is good to give positive reinforcement but other students are noticing and she should stop or come up with another way to include all the students.

Comments: I also feel that this is a one time thing and that there should be no consequence. The teacher is just recognizing the student's behavior and rewarding it this one time.

Comments: I agree with you because it isn't that serious of an offense. If it keeps happening then something should be done to let the teacher know they are doing something wrong.

Comments: Well it may seem harmless, I don't agree with the solution because favoritism is dangerous among students, because it may lead other students to stop trying the class, knowing that they will never reach the level of favoritism as another student

Comments: If it's good for one, it should be good for all. To avoid situations like this I'd try to remember as much as I like all my students, If I wouldn't spring for treats for the entire class, then I shouldn't do it for one student.
